I got my baby back!!

June 22, 2009

I used my Hamer Standard for the first time since the terrible accident it went thru back in February. To recap, I had finnished playing a gig, had put it in the softcase and got distracted, forgetting to zip it up. I then slung it over my shoulder and the guitar flew out and landed face-down on some light poles laying on the floor. The damage was pretty bad – the fingerboard separated from the neck, from the nut to about the 5th fret, the headstock had a crack in the back running across it, and there were dents.

Anyway, I spent Monday and Tuesday repairing it and gave it a try on the De Peir gig on Saturday night. It was great! Sounded and played like it never even went thru all that.

I’m so happy.
