Members SPONGEBOB Posted April 6, 2010 Members Share Posted April 6, 2010 I have a very sweet Hamer USA Special FM [Flame Maple top].. It has a Duncan 59 neck and Duncan JB in the bridge. They are decent, but I prefer a more "classic" sound like a 60's Gibson bucker, or even the PRS Dragon buckers ar similar. Nickle covered buckers have a less harsh sound to me... These Duncans are decent I supposse, but I want a covered bucker set in there, with coil splitting. Not sure what to get as yet, but I have always used PRS Dragons in past guitars and always love the sound. This guitar is very similar to a PRS, and should be close in tone IMHO.. Now, when I get the covered, coil splitting, vintage tone, buckers are in there, I want a trem. I miss having it, and not one of my bucker or P 90 guitars has it[just my strats]. Should I go with a B5 Bigsby, Les Trem[expensive!], or what?. Open to suggestions... I would was looking to buys a PRS CE, or decent Custom 22 but they seem real expensive all of a sudden.. Guys are wanting $1,800 for CE's that were $900 not long ago. My USA Special FM is not worth much even though its in really beautiful condition.I am not going to sell it for $400, and then have to add over a thousand more to get a low end PRS.. You think adding a cool trem and some sweeter pickups is the right way to go, or should I keep looking for a PRS with trem, and sell the Hamer? I don't need the guitar, don't play it much as is but really do like the body, and neck. The Duncan Pickups? meh... Never saw a solid body Hamer with Bigsby, but the thought intrigues me. I doubt it would devalue it much, as Hamers are a tough sell anyway , and you have to just about give them away .. Any thoughts would be appreciated... bob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
