92 Hamer USA Maurice Blanton Super Strat w/Case
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-07-15)
Price : US $761
Up for bid is what appears to be a very rare 1992 Hamer USA super strat style guitar in good used condition. The headstock has the name Maurice Blanton, so I assume this model was built for this particular guitarist? Haven`t been able to find any Hamer resembling this model on the internet. The serial # is 2301xx, and the pots are CTS dated 1991. The guitar has the original Hamer tuners. The neck is 3 piece maple with an ebony fret board. There are 24 frets and 15-24 are scalloped. Neck has a slim profile, is straight as an arrow with no twist, and the jumbo fret wires are in excellent condition. The scale is 25 1/2 inches. There are a couple of small dings on the back of the neck. There`s a very fine stress crack on either side of the neck socket, but doesn`t appear to be through to the wood. The body is jet black and has a few dings and scratches, but no exposed wood. The neck pickup is a Sustainiac blade type model, the middle a single coil with a double row of square pole pieces, and the bridge a humbucker with similar pole pieces. There`s an on/off toggle for each pickup and master volume and tone pots. All three pickups work in passive mode and soud great. However, I installed two 9v batteries and could not get the active Sustainiac neck pickup to work. There are two toggles attached to the internal circuit board for the Sustainiac, and one is broken. As you can see in the pics, the stem is broken off. A repair will be required to use the Sustainiac pickup, but the guitar plays fine without it. The bridge is Floyd Rose Licensed and works great, but the arm is missing. The original beat Hamer USA square black case is included. This is a real high quality instrument and a shredder`s dream. Shipping is $35.00, US and Canada. Overseas bidders use Paypal and pay actual shipping. Winning bidder must respond within 48 hrs after close of auction or item will be relisted. Payment due 7 days after close. Happy Bidding....
