  1. Thanks to some help I received in the Experts Forum, I was able to answer a question about my 1981 Special before listing it for sale. Thought I'd return the favor by listing here as well. Guitar is equipped with later '80's Hamer Slammer pickups. See the guitar at the Reverb link below. It is listed there at $1399, but be happy to apply the friends and family discount here. I appreciate the help I received in the forum and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. https://reverb.com/item/21949760-hamer-usa-special-1981-sunburst
  2. HI, Experts New guy here. Well actually was a member about a decade ago, but had to re-sign-up. Old guy in general, getting ready to move and downsize and, as such, looking to part with guitars I've had for many years, among them a 1981 Hamer Special. Want to make sure I'm describing it accurately when I post for sale somewhere. Here's my specific question: My understanding is that Specials from this era came with cream and zebra DiMarzio pickups. The pickups in this guitar (which I didn't buy new) are all black and marked on the back with "Hame-USA Guitars" (see pics below). Are these pickups original to this guitar, or is it likely that different/later Hamer pickups were installed. I changed out the knobs and switch tip to fit my preferences so I know that those aren't original. Maybe the pickup rings too. Thanks in advance for your response!
