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—like 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.
