    Pretty much the same as the Korean Deans. Overall I think they are a decent product for the money. I prefer the Hamer Slammer Series Korean made ones the best. The XT guitars are chinese made but have gotten good reviews especially the "Korina" one with the Duncan USA 59N/JBB combo stock in them. The Slammer by Hamer stuff is the bottom of the line stuff from Kaman. IIRC that stuff is not sold now. With Fender taking over Hamer brand all that will change if it hasn't.

    Truth is the Hamer import stuff was mearly a sharing of the brand name for Kaman to have an import electric guitar. On the factory tour I took in '04 Frank Rindone told us all the two divisions did little in relation to each other. The Hamer USA workers did not final prep or work on them IIRC. They shared Hamers models and specs but not parts or hand selected woods Hamer USA prides itself on. In the same building with Hamers build shop was Ovation USA guitar factory and other divisions of Kaman in the three or four building setup.

    As with most imports, you gotta put one in YOUR hands to know if YOU like it. I COULD love it but to you it might be "meh". I own Two import flattop Sunburst models at present. I have owned two others and an import Standard. That Standard was loaded with a Duncan USA 59n/JBB with Sperzels on it when I got it for $300 with case!!! Sold it 7 months later for $350 and no shipping.

    As I said there are a million versions of songs and it probably is a "Columbia radio edit". Cant own everything. Chances are he doesn't have Atlanta 9/17/2001 on cd but I do. There is a SWEET version of Honky Tonk Woman on that one. Yeah, Aerosmith, doing The Stones!!! Only Expert thing I might claim about Aerosmith would be I have a good time when I'm listening to them. Everything else is fluid. I have had every kind of experiance at Aerosmith shows from near fights to near lays, nearly getting arrested in Atlanta in 2002 to having the hair on my arms raise as the 2001 show in Indy started my first of 13 shows that tour. Next show I see will be #55.

    Life IS Good!

    So who wants a turn in The Well? I pm'ed With Full Distortion but he never replied or started a thread so......

    Thanks for not burning on me about any flaws that Priest cover MIGHT have.

    It was a blast.

    I like the Dealer section on the Dean Forum but I really like BRG Music cause of the ease of purchase and delivery. Need a nice B stock one PM me. Brand new but scratch and dent type. Usually minimum damage or cosmetic in nature stuff too.

    Didn't I answer that on page one? I own 7 Korean made Deans in various body styles. All are real nice and about the only thing done has been a pickup upgrade to one of them. P90 Z upgraded with Duncans.

    BTW, Korean LW Solteros all have Dean USA pickups in them.

    From page one: Overall I think they are a decent product for the money. As with most imports, you gotta put one in YOUR hands to know if YOU like it. I COULD love it but to you it might be "meh". The LWs are really well received.

    I am BTMN. Here I am in 2005 jamming on a 2004 Dean USA Z Pro loaded factory with Tonepro bridge, Seymour Duncan JB Bridge / '59er Neck pickups, and Grover tuners!



    Yes PUH, I have met them all in 1989 in London England on a fan club junket with 19 other Aerosmith fans. Own any Hard and Heavy VHS tapes or happen to get the dvd at Target a year or so ago? I'm on that from out in front of the venue, The Hammersmith Odean, I introduce the London Quireboys on it. They opened the Aerosmith London shows. I have met Brad Whitford and Tom Hamilton twice since. Briefly each time, hello, said something totally forgetable, goodbye.
    I have a '76 Ibanez Goldtop LP with Joe Perry's autograph still on it from the London deal. Brad's evaporated.

    Before I go, here is a lil clip of me singing/screaming Electric Eye last February at the Dean Open House Party. That is my Korina V with a set of Duncan Antiquities in it on my right in TransblueZ's hands, and the White V is played by it's owner, Thor, both outstanding brothers from the Dean board. Stichface Angel and BRI54 on drums round us out.

    Dont laugh to much it was the first time any of us had done this song together and it kicked off the member's jam section of the night.

    Two Flying Vs! I'm surprised that stage didn't launch into the atmosphere.

    You SHOULD SEE the Deans he is having made!!!! Think Strats with a twist. You talk to him?


    You would be a lil proud of me Mr. Jolly, I drank 6 shots of old Jack Black last night while strumming guitars and chatting with some fellow crazy Aerosmith fans during the Dallas show. Most I've drank in a long time. It wasn't planned that way but it was fun. A couple Dean USA Zs, 6 shots of JD, a couple nice Hamer Standards, add a Crate GT1200H and a 4x12 Mesa Cabinet from about 1990 and Voila FUN!!!!

    We have a running thread on the Aerosmith board with live setlist twtter reports and/or cell calls back and forth with someone at the show. Often times folks even arrange to call other folks and let them hear their favorite song.

    I've heard Walkin' The Dawg a few times thanks to a couple of girls I know who know my favs. I was cranking that one up a little bit last night at about the two shot mark.

    My show with Aerosmith and ZZ top was supposed to be 7/11 but it's TBR (to be rescheduled) due to Steven injuring his leg and missing 7 shows.

    Dang I ramble.
