      There's no point. I promise, he's just a bedroom guy with a 'what I own is better and everyone else is stupid' mentality. I bet he's a ton of fun to hang out with.



      "Hey stonedtone, check out my new Custom Shop Les Paul."



      "eh my hammer studio kills it."



      "Ummm ok."



      "See?? Even you agree."



      "Actually I'm just trying to leave as quickly as possible, but whatever you say."



      **stonedtone rushes to Internet to masturbate to hamers**











      Too bad they're out of business because barely anyone agrees with him.

        But bro, why would you buy an inferior Gibson? A Hamer does it better.

              It's personal preference. It's cool you think the Hamer Studio is better than all Gibson Les Pauls but that doesn't mean others will feel the same.



              I've played some great Hamer guitars and some dog Hamer guitars. I've also played some great Gibsons and some dog Gibsons. Every manufacturer has both.



              The Gibsons I have actually bought though have been killer guitars with excellent build quality. It seems you feel the same about the Hamer Studio you bought. Doesn't mean all Hamer Studios are great though. Same with all Gibsons, PRS, Fenders, ESP's, Jacksons, Deans, Ibanez, etc.., etc..,.




              This x 100000....



              You can a/b two different guitars all day long. Whose to say that if someone stepped in at that moment with another les Paul- that it wouldn't have sounded better ??? Or any other guitar brand for that matter??



              Better or worse tone is all preference based really. Two identical guitars made in the same plant won't always sound the same.

                  Do any of you really take cheap guitars and compare them to your friend's nicer more expensive instruments irl? Then demand they pick the 'winner'?



                  That's kinda weird.

                    I hate when people say "it sounds just as good". Well, when you run it through a line of effects and a great amp...you can make almost any guitar sound "good". You cannot improve feel and playability. Those are equally important to me, if not more.



                    I've never picked up a Hamer and been like "**************** yea, I need this". Except for my very first electric, and it was a MIK Tele I got when I was 13.

                      I've played some Hamers I liked ok but on feel, shape and just my preference of tone I seriously doubt I would ever choose a Hamer Studio over a Gibson Traditional Mahogany. The ones I have tried have sounded and played great.



                      To the OP. I say go for it.

                          I do too. I wouldn't have people over that came in comparing their cheap **************** to my ****************. I had a singer try to justify his cheap ****************. He'd rip 'overpriced' guitars while I'm playing an entire rig he felt was just a waste of money since his practice amp and epiphone were just as good as my plexi/Gibson rig. I eventually just stopped answering the phone when he called. It was such a beating to hear him talk. Fwiw I'd bet a weeks pay that if he had the money he'd play expensive **************** too. He was obsessed with brand names

                                If I like a guitar that's enough for me. I don't feel the need to try to make myself feel better about my purchase by saying it's a better guitar than a friends more expensive model.




                                I read that on the Internet a lot. People comparing their squier to a 'friends' fender custom shop and both parties unanimously agreeing the squier was a better player. The number of epiphone owners coming to this same revelation is staggering as well.
