Are these Explorers any good?

Recommended Posts

The Blitz was the lower priced Explorer shaped guitar that Hamer made.  The headstock was usually a 3+3 paddle, but sometimes they were the proper Explorer style.  They had beveled edges on the body where a Standard would have the more squared edges and usually a bound top. 

Finding a left handed anything is going to be less common, but they do exist.  Be patient.  The price of a used Blitz versus the cost of a nice XT Series is going to be close and worth it.

Actually those "korina" XTs are not all that bad of guitars and IIRC, those are USA Duncans in them. First Lefty I have seen in years.

These are great guitars for the buck. You won’t regret buying it. Waiting for a lefty Blitz could make you grey hair. They don’t appear very often, especially not in the UK.

They don't appear very often here in the Colonies either!
