    I thought about it .
    It just so happened that I had the installed combination available to me at the time ,at my house
    The nickel pups were in New Orleans at the GF's place .
    It still might happen
    But Im from the DiMarzio double creme era anyway ......it looks a little less tame than the nickel covers
    There may be a SC 90's Studio in the works who would probably get the nickel covers...we'll see

    I actually visted EVH,Malcolm, Ruyter Suys territory while I was settin it up :D

    There are a couple DC Standards on my local Craigs , an '02 that looks much like yours and a black '11
    Both priced at $1200. What do you think of that price ?

    I like the Standard a lot, the flame top and the trapezoid inlays are the classic look to me. I'd love to have an amber one. I was able to get mine for under $1000 (don't remember the exact amount, it was $950ish) without a case. It needed a setup badly so I was able to bargain. My bridge pickup is stock and sounds good, I replaced the neck with a Duncan 59 mostly so I could have a split there. As you mention, even with the unique internal construction it has a good tone and the low weight is nice. I did also put locking Grovers on mine:

    hamerusa 011.JPG hamerusa 011.JPG I really like the upper fret access on a double cut.Looks like Hamer copied the design very closely.This hamer was going to replace my LP,but as much as I like the feel,it doesn't have the fat bottom of the Gibster.I may experiment with pkup position today.I really don't care for the factory JB's in the Hamer,too bright in that axe.This thread makes me want to get her out of the coffin.

    I looked up a few on various places on the www
    Seems like 1200 these days is not terrible . Most of the ones I looked at started at 1300
    I think the newer ones have top binding . That's a "should've been" from the get-go ...as a LP Standard appointment ....just my opinion

    I was probably just lucky on the price on mine. The guy had been trying to sell a long time and it was in terrible playing condition at the time. Fortunately all it took was some truss rod tweaks and basic setup to make it great. I agree about the binding, looks more like a "Les Paul" with it.
