    Well, have any of you?
    I haven't, except on an H-C ad.
    I was just wondering if any of you ever played one.
    Any Chicago folks out there with info?
    Thanks.

    I did contact him and got pics.
    Shortscale 7 with a high A.
    Kinda weird. Could be great, but I don't feel like taking a chance.
    The fellow said he was currently teaching at a summer jazz camp in Wisc or Mich or somewhere.
    I best just stick to more traditional stuff¬ólike Heatleys!

    IIRC, both ESP and Hamer did this as well. I remember George Lynch playing the ESP. The Hamer is called a Maestro and is an *uber* rare beast. I would bet that no more than a handful of these were made. The Hamer was made around the same time as their Virtuoso which had 36 frets!! LOL!!!

    I had one of the Maestro's Hamer 7's back in the late "80s. It had a solid Curly Western Maple body , 3 Duncan Hot Rails, 24 frets and a Pau Ferro board. I had to take the neck off every time I needed to adjuest the Truss rod. I did a shitload of recording with that guitar.
