PSA: SOLD AND SOLD - 1993 Special FM, burst, $1050; modded 2003 Korina Jr., $1500 @ Reverb


Recommended Posts

I don’t  really give a hoot who owned a guitar before me as long as it’s a guitar I want, but that jr is being sold by a working musician with some notoriety, if others are into that sort of thing. 

I kinda wish Hamer had made more korina specials with 2 humbuckers    I bet it sounds badass

The string alignment looks like more of a bridge issue than a PU issue, given that the high E string looks closer to the edge of the fretboard than the low E. Or it could be a combination of both. In any case, with a wraptail like that you could easily nudge the strings over a bit, and even file grooves to keep them where you want them.

Maybe it’s the photo but the rhythm pickup looks crooked.

It does look wonky. But zooming in, the top of the pickup is parallel to the bottom of the neck and last fret. I think it's a little lens distortion. That guitar is badass: but I ain't shopping any more.

listing ended on the korina,   I had shot a decent offer (under asking but not horrible)

and he declined.   Looks like he got a few offers on it.

I like it, but then I've always had a thing for buckers with wrappers.

I'd hit that in a second! Sad when any Hamer gets butchered. But that one I'd rock out like there is no tomorrow. Those knobs though..... poor thing.

Love Antiquity humbuckers too.

Here's one with factory humbuckers, and at least a pound lighter. :) The only one I've seen except for Dumont's. About to try some BKP Blue Note humbucker-sized P90s.

That's so perfect! Dibs on that.

I watched that one for well over a week on Reverb, probably longer. Couldn't quite pull the trigger for whatever reason even tho' I've wanted a JR. for a long while.
