Actually, Glenn's first name being misspelled isn't new.

Oops. MY misspelling. I meant "not a standard A6" nor the Hamer GT. Wasn't trying to argue "standard issue" A7 by any means. Only that it is NOT the Phantom GT Glenn (notice he spelled it wrong in the eBay ad?) plays in Freewheel.

As you know, I am looking right AT the one he does play!

Sorry, there's a misspelling (A7)!!
Not "& control knobs"!! "6 control knob"

I think he want to make it more interesting for the buyers!!
It's the third A7 on ebay I know. Want to have one!! Dammit!!

Thanks for all the info, Phantom!!

Although it still doesn't make up for the fact that the seller is lying (or maybe naive...you never know) about which Phantom model Glenn was using in the Freewheel Burning video.

There are three versions of the A7.
The first version without the synth PickUp n a 3-over-3 headstock.
the second version without the synth PickUp n a 6-in-line headstock
and
the third version with the synth PickUp n the 6-in-line headstock.

Yep , it's a Hamer Phantom A7.
Four PickUps!! One single coil, one Triblebucker, but you can split the
Triblebucker in one Humbucker n one single coil. And theres the Roland Guitar synth PickUp. One 5-way PickUp selector n & control knobs.
You can find a lot of pics in my albums on my MySpace page.

In the "Freewheel burning" vid Glenn's playing a Hamer Phantom A6!!
One Hamer "Slammer" Humbucker n one volume knob!!

His Hamer Phantom GT is a special A6 version. With a "SG" neck,
two EMG 81 active humbuckers, one volume knog n one 2-way
PickUp selector. Glenn n K.K. prefer the 2-way PickUp selectors!!

Well then, let's leave it at that. The guy doesn't know how to count buttons (er, rather, volume knobs) and pick-ups.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Thursday, October 15, 2009 11:02:07 PM)

That is STILL not a standard issue A7 Hamer. "White lie" aside. He is full of BS. Even on the Turbo album.

Yup. I saw the little white lie he made in the description. HOWEVER!! There's no denying that Glenn did play a Hamer Phantom A7 model at one point in his career. With Roland Synths and everything, although more or less customized differently compared to the one the seller has. Had the guy said that Glenn played this model during the Turbo tour, then he would be more precise, although it still wouldn't get him too many bidders since the Turbo album isn't the most popular of Judas Priest's albums. Plus, the Phantom he's selling is in used condition, which may also be the reason why he's selling it at a low price...and you know how rare those Hamer Phantoms are in the market today.

I saw it. Guy doesn't know what he is talking about. It is NOT the guitar Glenn plays in the vid or in real life as any picture would show. That is an A7. Glenn played his trademark Hamer PhantomGT. Look at the number of pickups. Three on that one for sale...two on Glenn's. Same goes for the knobs. Three on the A7, one on the GT. Even IN the video.

THAT is why his price is going so low....most know better. Freewheel Burnin' screen capture:

Although you should really set the guitar where it is most comfortable for you, the most common starting point is about where it is when you play sitting. I personally have never liked the can pick your teeth with the trem arm height thing, but I will say it does vary by body style. The radical shapes hang lower than the more traditional for me.

Keep an eye on those strap buttons for a week or two, you never know what may happen over the long run, then check it once a month or so.. Gravity is a bitch, so show it a little respect in this matter....
[Vaillant 3.0] Sunday, October 11, 2009 3:37:55 PM 
Hey, SBD. Sorry it took a while. I placed the strap buttons last night and tested them today. I used that one method of putting in toothpicks, since it's budget-friendly (heheh). Except that instead of putting in toothpicks, I used Q-tips . The Q- tip sticks were made of wood, and were slightly thicker in diameter than a toothpick.

I cut off the cotton heads with scissors, and cut the remaining stick to the match the height of the strap hole. I put two pieces in each hole, then screwed in the nails and buttons with a screwdriver. Then I put on the guitar strap, but didn't test it then because it was late. This morning I put the guitar strap (with guitar) around me and let it hang from my shoulders for a bit to see if the buttons will hold, then proceeded to play a couple of pieces of JP tunes (and even got dressed for the occasion!). The result:
SUCCESS!!! Thanks again for the advice, gents!!!!

Before (the day I got it from my nephew this Jan.):



...and after!! You can see the small, silver strap button...the strap itself is black.



Now...my next question: Is there a proper way to stand while playing? How about the position of the guitar as you play it while standing?   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by SDBinNY from Sunday, October 11, 2009 8:54:43 AM)
