    Isn't that from when Epiphones were made in New York City, by Epiphone, before being acquired by Gibson?

    Seeing Vernon Reid shredding on Mtv made me want to try out Hamer. He must have gotten the good one. :) Joking, but I didn't find any that really sold me.

    I have played a few, they’ve unsurprisingly heavy, but sound good.
    The guitarist in the Climax Blues Band, Todd Rundgren, Greg Allman, used em’ too.

    I haven't dug that deep, admittedly, but I was still surprised to see Syd Barrett lined up with a Danelectro here. I've only seen him(in pictures on the net) with T-types. Most notably the mirrored Esquire.

    Roy Clark with a G&L.
    Glen Campbell with a 12-string Ovation (playing as fluidly as if it were a 6-string).
