  1. Ok so here I have a guitar. Markings up top are Hamer, made in USA and serial number on the back. I’m looking for year/ and model of guitar also a round about Value because I do want to sell this item. Possibly a t-51 pics are on my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100011298311000
  2. I stopped in to my local music store today to kill time while the car was getting new tires. They're a small store and usually just have a few Ibanez and Yamaha electrics. Today they had a couple of Gibsons, which I assume are used or on consignment. There was a Les Paul DC hanging on the wall, which caught my eye because it looks a lot like my Slammer Series Sunburst... double-cut, two humbuckers, flame maple top, wine red finish. Practically the same, right? But the more I looked at it, the more I realized the DC is just plain weird-lookin'. The bass-side cutaway looks like a puzzle piece without it's mate. I don't understand how the company that gave us TWO classic shapes: the Les Paul and the LP Junior (double-cut) could get the Les Paul DC so wrong. It looks like somebody sketched out a rough freehand on a Friday afternoon, intending to do a better job on MOnday morning, but found the patterns and CNC guys had just grabbed his rough draft and ran with it. OTOH, I think my lowly MIK Sunburst (and all Sunbursts, for that matter) is a think of beauty.
  3. Hey guys!! Got this early Sunburst. Seller disclosed body was busted/repaired, due to jealous girlfriend but NO break to the neck. I got it and can see the heel was also repaired, thus broken along with body. Section of binding in the area replaced (incorrect material), one non-original tuner, and though repair respray finish was pretty good, they used BROWN, instead of the proper red in the burst. Why?!!!! None of these were disclosed. I should also mention the neck angle now, isn’t what it should be, which I believe is due to the repair taking a way a bit of original back angle. Upper frets will also need leveling. Saddles can’t go any lower and action is just ok. Ideally, I’d like it a bit lower. He admits he doesn’t know much and wants to make good. I’d like to keep the guitar, but feel it should be valued less due to the mentioned items. He asked what I think is fair. Cost was close to $1500. What do you all think would be a fair partial refund amount? I’ve an amount in my head, but wonder if too low? Let me know what you’d ask. Thanks! p.s. will try to include photos
  4. All, My band-mates and I put together a Christmas vid, and I figured I would share it with you all https://youtu.be/M5T2zmOArtg This is the 1980 Special that I had Stike refinish...loaded with some amazing Gravelin pups! No pedals, just that sweet machine plugged into my DrZ Mini-Z (w/ 10" Greenback)... Hope you all enjoy! Thanks again to everyone that helped make that project turn out as well as it did...from parts, to case, to suggestions...you guys rule! Merry Christmas! Jer (BlueJer)
  5. WTB: Superstrat of higher caliber, preferably something With a reversed headstock, and preferably within the EU (unless It's void of rosewood). Hamer, Kramer, Robin, Zion, Vandenberg, Jackson, Charvel etc.
  6. I thought it would be neat to compile all the old guitar mag Hamer model reviews etc after finding this for the Sunburst Archtop in Guitar World from 1992. Hamer Sunburst Review.pdf

  9. PRICE DROP!!! ’79 Hamer Sunburst Serial Number: 9 0971 Picked this up on our forum last year. Has been owned by Micheal B and dboy66. There has been lots of chat about this guitar over the years. I’ve had my fun with it and time to pass it along to another member of the group. She’s all original and a great player for a 38 year old axe. Truly a great sounding/playing guitar. One that you can have a blast with and not worry about adding a ding to it. Action is low, frets are good for a little while, could use a dressing, I left them as it still played fine. One-piece flame maple top. One-piece neck is straight, no issues. Great old-wood Mahogany body/neck, rings like a bell. I’ve owned 3 and this one is by far the best of the 3. Lots of honest playwear, dings, marks, scratches. See pics. But no breaks/repairs. Neck is classic medium carve. 1st Fret: 1.63" x 0.85" 12th Fret: 2.00" x 0.914". Nice and lightweight at 7lbs 11oz. Comes with Original Hardshell case which is pretty beat-up, but still functional. $1,750. Shipped/PPG (Add Paypal fee for regular PP) Thanks, Ernie
  10. Hi Guys. Okay, the time has come to sell one of my floyd equipped Sunbursts / Studios...... I'm just not giving this one much attention- not for any reason other than I'm playing my TOM equipped guitars more at the moment, and I have 2 other blue Hamers, so I feel this one can maybe go to a good home where it's going to get played, rather than sitting in its case. ( It's the blue one in my avatar pic) It's a 93, with a nice standard neck ( my 91 and 92 have really thin necks- but this matches all my other Hamers up until 2004), the quilt is extensive, but the finish is quite dark, sometimes a little 'aqua' tint on the quilt- looks great in sunlight and stage lights, but darker in normal light. I've attached pics inside and out. Has one small scuff to the lacquer right where your hand sits above the bridge- would maybe buff out as its definitely lacquer only. Apart from that, she's in great condition. Has the original Seymour 59 / JB pickups re-installed ( I had Bare Knuckles in it, but went back to the originals), Any questions, ask away.... Ideally looking for £1000 paypal gift, or transfer. Now, with the CITES rules, this one will need to stay within the EU- preferably within the UK.......... Some pics.....
  11. Does anyone know fretboard radius on a 1989 Chaparral Standard Sustaniac ?
  12. I know, this is not my turf (calling ghamerinfrance - Gilles?), but these two seem to be pretty fair priced; 1991 Centaura, 500,- Euro https://www.zikinf.com/annonces/dispannonce.php?annonce=1355611 Diablo, 500,- Euro https://www.zikinf.com/annonces/dispannonce.php?annonce=1382658 No affiliation, of course. I am afraid I can't help here, but Gilles may will.
  13. I have a 2005 Hamer Artist, Mahogany semi-hollow with P-90's. It's in excellent condition and just set up. Asking $950 shipped in the conus.
  14. Modern Vintage

    Check this out! They might just be the new Hamer of Korean-made guitars.
  15. Hello to the fans of Hamer Chaparral! Recently I also became a happy owner of such a beautiful guitar) I was delighted with its sound and appearance. But later he was upset when he saw the internal editing inside the guitar ... It is possible that these are traces of the hands of former owners ... I decided to bring in a decent look all inside the guitar. I was able to do it .. no, not without difficulty.
  16. Gents, Go to Reverb, type in "Hamer USA", then sort by price (highest first). Check out the third page of what turns up, then go to a guitar store and see what the alternatives are at that price point. Great Googly Moogly, we have one hell of an opportunity to get fantastic guitars at awfully good prices. I guess we are in a golden age, as we head into our golden years. Then, if you want to really go over the top, see what Mike Shishkov can build for you. What an opportunity! I'll leave it to others as to whether or not we (or our heirs) will ever recoup our "investment". But what the hell, we have fun in the meantime, and have the opportunity to bring some beauty into our lives for a while, and that's pretty much all we could ask for. Good hunting, A.Bandini
  17. Howdy gang - OK, I admit... I'm so close to getting my 30-day chip but I've been jonesing something awful for one of these amazing guitars. If anyone in the HFCverse might be interested in freeing-up some space on their wall for some cash, maybe something cool in trade... or perhaps something a little more creative... please feel free shoot me a message. Cheers to you all.
  18. Project guitar. Saw this on my Denver area Craigslist. Not mine, just passing this along. (I have no affiliation) https://denver.craigslist.org/msg/6022737289.html
  19. PSA for my eBay auction. I finally got my account confirm, so as of the moment there's 90 minutes let on the clock. Goregous, well kept, cleaner now than the pics which were taken when I bought it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/182461988259
  20. In case you haven't seen this yet. https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/25393-namm-17---hamer-guitars-standard-demo?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=NAMM 2017 Video Recap %234&utm_term=PG Weekly Sorry. I know I'm kicking a dead horse.
  21. Night Ranger (to me the most American of all American rock bands) have released a new live package, "35 Years And A Night In Chicago". I got the 2CD + DVD edition here: https://www.amazon.com/Years-Night-Chicago-Combo-Deluxe/dp/B01LYZGNDF There's plenty of enjoyment for guitar fans like us... because you know it's all about that bass:

Finish has lifted from high-E side of the fretboard over the entire length, and has chipped away completely for the first four frets.

The only time I notice it while playing is where it’s completely chipped away along the first four frets, but it doesn’t bother me in the slightest. Numerous impressions/dings here and there. One small paint chip on the back of the neck at the 9th fret where wood is exposed (size of a match head). Ships in Hamer branded era appropriate HSC that was purchased separately.

  24. Looking for a hamer artist custom over here. No offense, but not a green one. obv pre 2008 as well. open to paying cash or trade or a combination of the two.
  25. FS: Hamer Jazz Box guitar with original Bigsby tremolo. Near-mint condition. Incredible flamey sides and back. I’d give it a 9.8, not really any dings or marks at all on it. (You can see the 3 small screw holes on the bottom edge, where the old tailpiece was mounted.) Plays really nice with low action and huge tone plugged and un-plugged. Perfect axe to live out your Pat Methany fantasies! 100% original except for added Bigsby (I don't have the old tailpiece). I'm just not playing it much in my non-smoking home. Comes with a really nice, TKL hard-shell case too. Yes, it's an import model, but, it's a killer sounding/playing Jazz Box no less. SOLD!
