    Anybody have one of these? I just picked up a semi-hollow jr in Korina that is better than my 65 335. I have been thinking about a les paul jr and then I heard about these. Is it is as good as I think it is?

    Thanks for the insight.

    I know these are hard to come by, but if anyone knows of anybody who is selling or is interested in selling themselves, I am interested in buying.

    Sent you an email on this. Not sure if the is really a Jr hollow or not. If it is, I already have one of those. I am actually looking for a Baker Jr in Black Limba or a solidbody Jr.

    The Baker would probably cost you at least five times as much as the Hamer

    Granted, but i don't know that it's five times better than the Hamer. Hamers are fantastic guitars.

    I've had guitars built to my specs as an endorsee by both companies. I'll go with Gene every time.

    I bought this guitar from Gil's daughter so she could go to Cheerleading camp. Incredible guitar, 22.5" scale length, Brazilian board, Korina neck and body and no trussrod.[​IMG]

    I had the twin to this one -- I was the original owner -- and had to selll it when I was out of work last year. It was one of the best guitars I've EVER played, and I regret selling it pretty much every day.
