Epic Triple NGD! Pics inside!!

Well, craigslist strikes again. Another good deal. For a grand total of $200, I got this:

1). Hamer Californian 27 fretter, pickups upgraded to Dimarzios (Air Norton / Super 3) and trem upgraded to an Original floyd.

2). Schecter Omen 6, pickups upgraded with a Seymour Duncan 59 and a Dimarzio Breed.

3). ESP Eclipse (one of the older ones), a project guitar in that it's missing the pots and pickups, but has everything else including a brand new Original Floyd Rose.

Literally $65 a piece. The guy even threw in 2 brand new floor stands. The Schecter needs to have the input jack resoldered (5 minute fix), and the Hamer has one fret that has a tiny dent (doesn't affect playability, but I can get it replaced for 10 bucks if i want). The Eclipse has no issues of any sort. I love craigslist.

Pics!!







And a group shot:



I can't review the Eclipse cuz it doesn't have electronics :P, but the neck feels great. The Hamer plays like an old favorite, great pickups and beautiful neck binding. The Schecter is decent, plays like any mid-range-y guitar but the Duncan and Dimarzio pickups definitely are a huge upgrade.

Holy crap!!! Why can't I find stuff like that on Craigslist? I would have paid $200 for the Hamer alone in a second.

Nice score

I picked up one of those Californians a few weeks back on UK Evilbay. Groovy red metalflake colour and it plays great. The original Duncan Designed pickups aren't bad, either.

Yeah they're ok, I'm not a fan of Duncan Designed pickups though. These Dimarzios are a huge upgrade, as the original floyd rose.

Re: Epic Triple NGD! Pics inside!!

That Hammer is basically identical to the Caparison Horus.. Wonder which manufacturer was first to make it. I know Itrau over at a caparison was responsible for some earlier models that had a similar configuration, but maybe Hammer beat em' to the punch?

Re: Epic Triple NGD! Pics inside!!

Thanks man. I've actually played several comparisons, and with the pickup swap and the OFR this Hamer matches up pretty evenly. Especially when you consider the 30X less price
