My nine string feature consists of an octave string paired with the low "E", "A" and "D" strings.
When you play chords with this feature it sounds like a twelve string guitar, giving the chords a
strong full sound with added octave notes. However, it gives the player the freedom to "Bend" the three
high strings for solo lead work. It gives the player the best of both worlds when deciding whether to use
a six or twelve string guitar.
For those of you that are looking for something less expensive, may I suggest my NEW VINTAGE model.
This guitar features a one piece mahogony body, a mahogony neck, two P-90(soapbar) pickups for that
old vintage `50's and `60's tone, a Tune-o-matic bridge with stop tailpiece, 3-way toggle switch, volume
and tone controls. The entire guitar has a hand rubbed tung oiled finish for a raw and natural look
and feel. I price this guitar to go, for $1950.00 with case! A lacquered finish is available for
an additional $200.00.
To place an order for your HAMBURGuitar, please send $500.00 (check or money order only please)
to Bernie Hamburger, 10188 Cupid's Dart Street, Las Vegas, NV 89183.
IMPORTANT! Please make sure you enclose your exact shipping address and your phone number.
This way we can keep in contact with each other during the construction of your new instrument. The
$500.00 secures the agreement and also partially covers my expenses for the materials required to
construct your new guitar. Upon completion of your guitar, I will then contact you, at that time you
will send the balance due and then your guitar will be shipped insured via UPS parcel service to your
front door. Depending on your location, you would recieve your HAMBURGuitar, in approximately five business
days. From start to finish, your new guitar would take three months to build, of course that time may vary
slightly depending on how many orders I am working on at that time. The longest anyone has ever waited for
there new HAMBURGuitar, was four months. Please give me the chance to build your favorite guitar!
Thank you very much,
Las Vegas, NV
