    How did you get to the HFC?

    My profile says I joined December 31th 1969. I don’t remember anything from that day...

    How'd you get into Hamer?

    1999.. I was looking to buy a ES335. Went to a local music store - tried several. None were satisfying, but they had a 96 Artist on the wall - tried that one and it felt like it was made for me. Bought it for a discounted price because they had it for several years and it showed some hameritis. Never heard of Hamer as a brand before. Wrote a letter to the factory to ask for some more info and got a extensive reply with catalogs. They also asked if I knew something about distributers over here. I brought them in contact with a guy in Belgium who effectively started distributing them over here.
  5. And some more €. Where were the times when the Dollar was 1.60 to the Euro and customs didn’t cared. I had at least 2 guitars shipped from the States with no custom fees. They didn’t had a clue that a Hamer was worth anything.

    Is this Sunburst legit?

    Great score - you have the wood almost for free.
