Final New Hartford Hamer Standard has arrived!

Recommended Posts

Well, I couldn't make it through work today. I went home & got there about 30 minutes before it arrived. It made it safe & sound. It is extremely light... on my bathroom scale, only 6.6 lbs! The pickups sound great as I thought they would. I re-strung it with .011s & it's ready to roll.



Thank you Dave Peers for getting the order placed, Mike Shishkov for his hard work & in process pictures, Jackass for his last day heroics in getting the guitar out in time & everyone else at Hamer. You guys are the best!



Note the "Bell" truss rod cover.

These are the last ones...

That is just "right" on so many levels. Well done. Congrats to the new owner. Congrats to the crew for getting one more out there.

I am glad they got that one out for you!

Just out of morbid curiosity, what is the FINAL serial number from Hamer?

We should dub this the "Skin-of-the-Teeth Standard," arriving three days after the factory was shut down.

At leat they went out with a bang (this gorgeous instrument) instead of a whimper. Great work to the very end, guys. I may never part with my 2000 Newport after this.

3 56432 - I guess there could be one out there with a later number if it was finished before mine. Let's hope the remaining Hamers can be finished somehow.

And by the way, I tried for more than one, but it was too late.

Perfection, and a wonderful way to go out.

DIBS!

Bugger.....

But somehow I don't think it will ever leave David B.

As a testament to the skills at the Hamer workshop it's a fitting farewell.

Good that you managed to get a bell TRC they look so much better than the strange shaped ones the later Standards had.
