This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-07-22)
Price : US $510.00
This is a 1993 Made in the US Hamer Special, serial number 333871, that i bought new around 1995 at an authorized Hamer dealer. I have been the only owner. The instrument has lived in my smoke-free home since i bought it and has only been used for practice and jams with friends. The finish is the vintage sunburst, very unusual for this model. Construction is all mahoghany with the Honduras rosewood fretboard, 22 nice big frets, 2 Seymour Duncan P-90's, self-lubricating nut, and stop tailpiece. It comes in the original locking Hamer hard shell case. It has a slim taper neck which just feels great in your hand. The neck PU is warm and rich sounding and the bridge has that great P 90 bite. This guitar is perfect for rock, jazz and blues.
It is completely stock EXCEPT: I changed the normal knob configuration from VOL, VOL, TONE to a strat style set up of VOL, TONE, TONE. It suited my playing style much better. I also changed out the boring black control knobs for the gold barrel knobs which are much easier to use for quick adjustments during playing. The final change i made was having the graph-tech bridge saddles installed. I think they improved the tone and sustain and I have never broken a string since putting them in. It was re-fretted in 2003 by Superior Guitar Restoration here in Philly. The owner, Tim, mostl
