  1. Hi there, I have a Centaura (1990 I think, serial is 026039) that is in need of attention. Standard, not deluxe so passive pickups. It's had a bad refret job with vintage style Fender frets a long time ago and they feel and look horrible. I want to get it refretted with something that matches what it originally had, or as close as possible. Does anyone here know what wire to use? Secondly, the Schaller Floyd is in need of replacement as the thread has gone on one of the clamps so it's impossible to intonate the D string. What's a good replacement? It's already been replaced once so I'm thinking that Schaller might not be as hard wearing as original Floyd Rose models. Thirdly, what does the small switch do? I think Hamer called it the "Thick Switch' which to my ears does pretty much nothing. Fourthly, are these Seymour Duncans? I think some earlier Centauras had some custom DiMarzio's on board. Thanks for any help you can give, it's appreciated!!
  2. Incredibly clean Hamer Centaura in granite finish on Reverb. I wouldn't hesitate buying another USA Centaura if my country Turkey wasn't going through an economic crisis. No affiliation.

  4. Popped up yesterday. Seller says: Broken neck fixed, but very stable, some blemishes, frets ok, all over good condition for its age. https://www.ebay.de/itm/1980-Hamer-Special/392194871224?hash=item5b50a2cfb8:g:UX8AAOSw1jpcFoIB And then there is this blue Centaura for a - at least for Europa - a pretty reasonablne price: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/1990-hamer-centaura/1013991567-74-9604 No aff, but willing to help out if needed.
  5. As some of you might remember, "the Mutt" has a neck from a Hamer USA Chaparral, & the body is from a Centaura (a 2nd single coil middle slot is empty under the stickers). Stock Schaller licensed Floyd Rose bridge still works great, no tuning issues. It now has Ibanez USA pickups (from an 80's Saber, made by dimarzio I believe). Disclosures; tone knob is disabled (my tech said the tone is better that way, I dunno). Pro headstock repair (BCR Greg did it, i think). Med/thin neck has been sanded to bare wood (feels great), & has been glued into the neck pocket (an experiment in tone/sustain, but I couldn't tell any difference). Prism stickers look great under stage lights, or peel 'em off and refinish it yourself. Lots of dings/battlescars/wear, as its a gigged rawk beater that still feels/sounds/looks very good, imfo. Crwth145 has 1st dibs, otherwise its $300 + actual shipping (UPS Store Packing Job, Insured). Consider trades for guitars/amps/shotguns, whatcha got?
