    I love it! The woods are outrageous, from the mahogany back to the beautiefully arched spruce top; the especially luscious piece of quartersawn rosewood for the fingerboard.... mmmmmmmmmmm,I don't reckon I've ever seen finer. The build quality on this one puts most manufacturers to shame. Let's put it this way: everything written in the Guitar Player, Tone Quest, and Vintage Guitar reviews is dead-on, and they fell all over it. Go read em on the net. Pointless for me to parrot them, as that's exactly what I'd do.
    I can't imagine being more happy with a purchase. Really! I'm just itching for next rehearsal now...... and there's a few, very worried Strats in my collection right about now, he he he.

    Georgeous guitar. I love Hamers. My dream guitar is a Monacho also.
    I'm afraid to ask how much...

    Just took a few of mine. I am considering selling it, but it is a very tough call after looking at these.

    No arguments from me! That's double-gorgeous.

    I actually played Greg's Monaco when it was in Rocketeria. I A/B'd it with my maple-topped Monaco 3. That guitar really breathes and you literally feel every note (in a really really good way!).

    Makes me wish I could justify a second one.

    IMHO, this is one of the few newly designed guitars, that is a real classic already !
