I would like to take an informal poll.... I have an '04 LP Classic and an '03 Hamer Custom Studio.....unfortunately, some recent financial set-backs may force me to part with one of these (and I love them both). The LP has a very thick smooth sound whereas the Hamer quality is much more refined. Because of the quality and feel of the Hamer, I am 'leaning' towards selling the LP and keeping the Hamer as my humbucker guitar. Has anyone else switched from LPs to Hamers?....Did you have regrets?...Did you eventually switch back? Let me know your thoughts/suggestions/experiences. Thanks.
