    I bought a set of tuners from the man. Excellent transaction. Quick and easy. They shipped alot faster than I expected. He even threw in a surprise! Thanks!
     
  5. I had a problem with my bridge ripping out of my bass awhile back. Posted for help on the setup forum, and Hambone offered to fix the issue and install a new good quality bridge. I sent it over to him, and he sent it back in a MUCH better condition than I sent it in. Full setup, shielded, personalized, and he even cut out some shims for me to help with my action problems. You can see the thread here:

    Bought some neck bolts and inserts. Solid product that is HARD to find, but an ultra good price!!! Shipped them right out, and is great on communication. Thanks again, Allan.

    Sold him a bunch of knobs so he can complete building his "Hambone" radio to contact aliens from Mars. He kept on talking about the voices from outer space, but I always hear old guys talking nonsensical stuff like that so don't let that stuff scare you off. He paid quickly and the transaction was smoother than a slice of fatback on a hot Georgia sidewalk. Quite hospitable folk who is extremely helpful with stuff related to fixin up basses or aliens.

    Done three deals with hambone. Sold him some pickups and a bridge. Bought bolts and inserts. Learned COUNTLESS tips on how to setup/fix/assemble my basses from him. Great guy, sends payment immediately, communicates well.

    Hammy rocks!!!

  13. I want to thank all of you guys that trust me to do things right. I want to be different and, these days, that means doing what I've said I'll do and a little more.

    Change comes from within...not just that little cup at the bottom of the machine.

    Hambone bought a couple of speakers from me and was a nice person to deal with. I hear he is a great luthier/tech as well and I hope to find out first hand one of these days.

    I'm a repeat customer of Hammy's, and can state that this was a complete repeat of my earlier experience.

    I needed some knobs for a Jazz, Hammy jumped in and sent them out, a bit delayed, but it's the post office's fault. Got them, just as expected and can't complain.

    Well, I could, but I don't know what about. Working with Allan is as perfect as could be.

    I just purchased neck inserts and bolts from Hambone for my Warmoth. He had given a lot of good advice with questions I have had and got me set up with the hardware. This was all before I even saw the beautiful basses he builds. Good transaction all around.
