I got my copy from Amazon yesterday. The book looks great, and what I've read so far is really well done. It made me realize that so many people from the early years of Hamer Guitars are people that I met during the late 70's when I was exploring the cool music stores in the near-North Chicago suburbs. The funny reminder was that Paul Hamer's wife, Sis, was the person who cut my hair years ago. I recall her talking about her husband's new guitar company in Palatine! I didn't even remember that detail until I read the book! Steve, I have some cool Hamer basses for your follow up book!
