I got a hold of a pair of Duncan Ultimates machine wound humbuckers, I say machine wound cause these are wound to the same specs as the Ultimate handwound Seymour did for Hamers Ultimate Artist series only machine instead of hand ( I'm not sure I appreciate the difference, but anyway ) hand signed by SD himself! Gonna try them in my spruce top Hamer Monaco ( I still own this guitar, some thought that I sold it, I just could not part w/ it, a custom piece made for me ) report back soon, should be way cool!

ps they are gold and they would look better in my LP custom, hmm

Very cool! I recently stumbled upon the Hammer Newort Pro with the Spruce top. Sounds like it woudl be a remarkable guitar for the money as is your Monaco!

Since I have a strong prospect of a respectable day gig I have been searching for a guitar that would suit my needs-a single guitar.

I wanted mahogany back and neck, semi-hollow or thinline and a solid spruce top with humbuckers.

Well, there is the PRS which costs more than I have. And then there is the Benedetto Benny which costs more than most cars I owned in college... And then I stumble upon the Newport Pro for about $1500 NEW!

I started looking at Hamers as I remember Scott, Ben and yourself mentioning them. What a remarkable buy and according to all accounts remarkable even at twice the price.

Once I finish having my old Law Suite Era L5 setup with new pots, caps and a new nut I'll be ready to go. And then I can practice while saving for the NewPort.

Heh heh...I just re-strung my old Hamer Chapparal today and was squealin' like old times. The volume pot sounds like sandpaper (can I fix that?) and the SD-59 in the bridge is half crusted in rust and corrosion (still sounded fine).

Which us how I found this old thread. I was searching for a bridge humbucker replacement.
