I just received a rather tasty mid-90's Hamer USA Artist that I purchased online (may or may not post pics soon). However, it's main flaw was that there were string divots pressed into the low frets for the unwound strings. A lot of them. Luckily, a fret dressing later, and I was able to resolve the issue, which is good, although I'm sure many would've lost their ever-loving minds over this. But that brings us to the question regarding it's prior owner(s) and similar individuals. And that question is... (cue hilarious rant) Fret mashers...what is wrong with you? Why have you developed a playing style where your monstrous meat-clamps contract so friggin' hard that they literally embed metal into other metal? What are some of your other hobbies? Do they include cracking walnuts with your brobdingnagian digits? Compressing coal into diamonds with your elephantine vise-like appendages? Finger-banging The Sarlac Pit with your gargantuan hirsute lycanthropic...ok you get the point. Seriously though. W...T...ever-loving F? It's no wonder some of you develop arthritis. EDIT: Clarification for those who seem confused. I wasn't talking about normal fret wear from bending, vibrato, etc. I was talking about fret divots, an extreme example of which is shown below: EDIT #2: This is not my Hamer (it was not as bad as that), but a random pic I found online.
