    There is something special about a 1 pickup guitar. Mine below is pretty darn hip! Date on camera is wrong. I just bought my USA Hamer Special Jr. a few months ago. I've posted it for trade a couple of time thinking I needed something else but I just can't let this one go!

    Man, I had the same Ibanez Roadstar II guitar way back in '84. That thing was a real screamer. I thought the stock pickup sounded great. Sold it because I could never get used to the 21 fret neck.....Wish I still had it..

    Hey man, what SG is that? What year, etc? My friends dad has one exactly like it, but it's in rough condition, and i didn't notice a serial number anywhere. I've had thoughts of buying it from him, and sanding it down and re finishing it.

    First post.


    This is probably the best guitar I currently own, and it was also my cheapest.

    I found this poor neglected MIJ Charvel Model 1 in a pawnshop for $70. It was covered in stickers, but I knew it was something special so I picked it up. Got it home, removed the stickers, shimmed and reglued the nut, and repaired the jack, and I had a great guitar at an unbeatable price

    Out of 50+ guitars only a single 1 p/u model. Hmmm. Maybe I need to do some shopping.

    Thanks Nick. Still loving this guitar. If you look at the picture in the flash at the fretboard, you can see how slick/smooth the rosewood has become from a ton of playing. Good thing it has SS frets!
