Hamer Special-No Love

I've always wondered what the story was with the thinner lower horn on the wyldbil special. I came after he had passed and wasn't aware of the details. 

Perhaps it passed through Steve Vai's hands at some juncture?ūüėÜ

A few among many others that have graced me with their presence.  The one on the right was my first Hamer

Also, I've loved the couple of p90 specials from the 90's I've had or played. A Gibson currently fills that void, but I would love another Hamer Special or two. I have no idea about the 80's ones though. 

 

Bil liked to modify his guitars and he did this one up just like he wanted it. Been a while since I played it. It has been out on the HFC trail a lil over 5 years now.

Those two in the middle were at Casa Toadroller together for a little while.

Every Hamer fan should own a Special.

There was much Special (and Proto and Sunburst) love around here. Many have come and gone.
As did these.

For me THE Special was the first Hamer I¬īve owned (in the 80¬īs) The first Hamer¬†I could afford! since that time¬†I am a fan!¬†

To be honest not the first choice model to play today, but still an old -and the first- "love"

The fact that the white one has not yellowed and the green one has not faded makes one wonder if that photo was taken in the moment either of those Specials was exposed to sunlight or oxygen.

Both happend! But I am no great photographer :-) the photo was taken today :  spring sun :-)

In reality the B&W show some yellow colour (like teeth from a smoker) and the nitro finish is cracked a little (guitar also will be shown in the book at page 78...)
