  1. An '82 Special could be pretty intriguing too, as far as trades go!
  2. Heya, decided the slightly larger (vintage carve/59ish) neck on this gorgeous 2002 Hamer Studio is just a smidge big for my tastes. Selling for what I have into it - a decent deal for someone! This one is in Very Good+ condition with: - a few small dings on the sides - two small dings on the tip/side of the headstock - - some light lacquer scuffing by the input jack - some very light lacquer scuffing on the top by the bass-side bridge thumbwheel - one teensy top ding by the bass side of the bridge pickup Non-original parts include a set of Rio Grande BBQ/Texas pickups and a set of Grover Deluxe Kluson-style tuners (you can see a bit of the existing non-plugged screw holes). Came to me without a case, but will ship in non-original plastic molded Gator Les Paul-size case if purchased at asking price. $1599 plus shipping, all details, pics and payment options at the link below. Pics show a set of mini-Grover tuners, which can be included, but they were not great: https://www.guitarmalfk.com/shop/Guitars/p/2002-Hamer-Studio-x67750361.htm Would consider trades +/- cash for an 1982 Hamer Sunburst in good vintage condition, a Hamer Korina Jr or MAYBE a cool Hamer shredder (Grail would be a short scale, Sustainer-loaded Chaparral) Thanks, and don't hesitate to text or call with questions: 785.856.0552
  3. It’s been awhile since I’ve bought anything for myself, but this popped up on TGP for the going-rate price in Very Good condition AND the seller wanted one of my small amps in trade, so it worked out! My all time fave finish on a Hamer and dot inlays for a perfect, moderately bling-y look. Currently has Rio Grande BBQ and Texas pickups - they suit it well. Neck will require some getting used to on my part as I’m a 90s thin-neck-Hamer/Gibson 60s slim guy and this is definitely more of a ‘59 carve, but is very comfortable - just not what I’m used to. pics!
  4. This one is surprisingly still available! Or, you could buy that 6000 Greco
  5. Heya! Local trades + cash could be an option. (A certain ‘82 yellow flame special??? ) Would love for you to come check out the shop! Hit me up next time you’re in/around Lawrence.
  6. This beauty is still available. No trades at this time unless you’re local! thanks for all the comments and interest.
  7. heya, sorry I missed your question. One was the sustain block TLE that has already sold locally. The other three are 2 Slammer Series Daytonas (black one with an oddball roller nut/recessed bridge and a natural Alder one) and then an MIK Double Cut archtop in Cherry Burst with just Hamer logo and Duncan Designed humbuckers. All the Slammers need a lil' love
  8. That catalog description is amazing in every way PS: pics were taking in the shop of the actual guitar in its present condition
  9. Retailer Affiliation: While a long-time member here, for the last three years I have been the owner/founder of Guitarma, a small brick-and-mortar guitar shop in downtown Lawrence KS. We donate a portion of every sale back to community programs. I was lucky to end up with a few Hamers as part of one of my last buys - one of which is this amazingly rad 1999 USA Hamer Futura Korina. In Very Good condition with a few minor dings, but otherwise, extremely clean. Don’t think it saw much play time. Super light and super comfortable to play, setup nice and all original to the best of our knowledge, aside from the case. It fits it perfectly, but doesn’t say Hamer on it, so I assumed it was non-original. I believe this is from the later/last Japanese market run of the Korina series, but I encourage anyone with more details/knowledge to please correct me. I’m offering it here for the local/in-store price first before it hits Verb later this week. $3699 + $75 shipping https://www.guitarmalfk.com/shop/c/p/1999-USA-Hamer-Korina-Futura---wHSC-x64535573.htm Feel free to reach out with any and all questions. thanks! Casey
  10. Hey man,

    Im about to list the 1980 special that was Jakeboy's and when I let him know it was gonna go up for sale he mentioned you might be interested.  I figured I'd reach out to you before listing the guitar in case you wanted it.

    Think your inbox may be full because I tried to PM you and it said you couldn't receive messages.

    let me know if you want to discuss.

  11. Case, I am planning on selling my 1980 Checkerboard Special to raise fundage for a Newport. I am asking $1k I think....I am trying to determine what the going rate is....pic in the main forum. You get first crack, my friend.

  12. Shredder search update: - tried the G&L. quite liked it. played it for 30 mins in the shop, was ready to pull the trigger, then they told me it had sold earlier that day ?? oh well. - tried the Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas at GC -- needed a good setup, but I didn't find much I liked about, even with that in mind. Can say I'm not a big fan of unfinished necks. Was sitting in the GC parking lot, feeling kinda bummed, and got a text about a Hamer from my local CL. Guy had an amazingly clean 1990 Hamer Centaura in the granite finish. I bought it on the spot after playing it. This thing smokes. Love the neck. It sounds great -- though I will definitely switch out the single coils. Look for a NGD here soon. thanks for all the help. I dunno, the Hamer feels like home
  13. Slight tweak to my original thread: anyone ever play one of the old G&L Climax Plus guitars? I know it's quite a departure from the Modern, but it looks cool. The one I'm scoping is an Ash body in cherry burst, maple neck/board. Old Gotoh trem. I'd be getting it for about $500 -- I have not had a chance to play it yet, and won't until later this week. Any cautions/kudos? There's very little info on the net about them. Or eBay Thanks
