Gday Folks, I know this is sellers thread but I was just wondering if any Aussie members have a Les Paul Custom shop Junior they’re thinking of selling?

Cheers, Scott.

G'day all

I have a 1981 Hamer Special for sale ('Les Paul Special') if anyone is interested.

This guitar was a gift from my parents 25+ years ago but unfortunately I never took up playing. As the wife is on the hunt for more wardrobe space at the moment, I find myself in the situation where I've decided to sell the guitar.

As my own knowledge about guitars is very limited, I have visited several guitar stores (including ones that have sold Hamer guitars) for feedback and valuations. This included the store connecting it to an amp to ‘test’/play the guitar. Feedback includes:

- Plays great and is in good condition.

- Mahogany body

- All original parts, with a possible exception that one of the three controls for volume and master tone may be a replacement control.

- When it came to the colour of the guitar some called it ‘Flame Top’, however in my opinion it looks more like the ‘Opaque Red Special’, which was one of Hamer Guitar’s own colours they made it in.

The guitar comes with a Hamer hard case, which is a a bit worn on the outside but good condition inside. Also included is a leather shoulder strap (not Hamer made).

The guitar has some nicks, which is expected from an old vintage guitar that has been used. Refer photos for these. There is also a small ‘unplugged’ screw hole from a previous ‘leftie’ that used it.

I am selling the guitar for AUD$1,500.

It can be posted at the buyer’s expense. Alternatively, it can be picked up in Brisbane.

The value that the stores gave a 1980-1983 Special is between AUD$1,500 to AUD$2,000. They advised that AUD$1,500 was for the ‘worst’ Hamer Specials and this guitar is definitely not in that category. I was advised to advertise it for AUD$2,000. However, as my wife wants to reclaim the wardrobe, I have priced it low for a quick sale.

For comparison, I have seen a 1982 Hamer Special (also used) listed in an Australian retail store for AUD$2,700.

G'day all,

Tumble weeds blowing through here!

My brother has a couple of 10" Weber speakers for sale on flea bay if you guys are interested. Brand new, never used.

They're Weber 10F150T speakers. That means they're copies of the old Chicago made Jensen C10P speakers with a 1.5" voice coil. The bigger coil and the ceramic magnet will give them better bass, and the T denotes the ribbed cone Weber uses to enhance top end.

Great match for Fender Super amps, or any other American voiced amp using 10s.

WTB: 61 - 65 SG Special or Jnr project


Hi guys,
I’m always looking for personal restoration projects. Right now I’m going through an SG phase and would like to add a Special or Junior to my collection. In particular I’m looking to restore any SG Special or Junior from 1961 - 1965 or mid to late 60s SG melody makers. Please let me know if you want to get rid of any unwanted projects at a reasonable price.
