NGD....Hamer Sceptre

I woke up today thinking nothing out of the ordinary was gonna happen. I was thinking the highlight would be doing my laundry and going to bed early to get ready for work tomorrow, when I went to one of the other forums I go to, and checked out their classified section. Well I almost fell out of my chair when this one dropped........4 hours later it's sitting in my livingroom!!

This one here is a US made Hamer Sceptre. I've been wanting one forever, but they're rarer than chicken lips, so I figured I'd never get the chance. Now this one does have an issue or two. The dude who sold it to me told me how it fell off a stand and landed on a concrete floor. The headstock broke off.....cleanly though. This is mitigated to me for a couple reasons. First off it was repaired by probably the best luthier/repairman in the greater Boston area, a guy named Jim Moraudian. He's made custom instruments for guys like Chris Squire, Pat Badger and others, and he did a topnotch job on this one. If you close your eyes and run your finger over the repaired area you WILL NOT be able to tell anything ever happened to it. In fact, it's undoubtabley stronger there than any other place. The other thing is, I got it for a really good price. The only thing that needs attention is the trem was replaced by the original owner to a Jackson JT-6. I definitely plan on getting a black OFR for it.

Further on down the line I think I'll use her as a bed for a couple EMGs with the 18volt mod, or maybe even check out the Duncan Blackouts. I'm also thinking down the road that a new finish might be in order. Maybe something similar to what metalgod 72 had done to his 770. Probably not an animal type scheme, but something else cool nonetheless. Until then, I'll just keep Calvin on there.
