Well we know it’s not Mr. Campbell’s single cut 12-string.

Thanks to Google and The Book, I’ve narrowed it down to about 1,672 possibilities. 

We need a hint!

Some boomerangs?  So does that mean it has a combination of boomers and dots, or is it all boomers, or is just a couple of boomers, or was it used in a Nike promotion?

Nice score! Is that an EMG 89 in the bridge position?

Definitely one of the dual mode designs, could be 81TW, 89 or 89R.

I've never seen boomers with dots before. How's it sound? ... The guitar, not the fret markers...

It’s the “Deluxe” version - Alder body and EMGs, and the 2xBoomer fretboard.   Only did those for a short while.

They don’t show up often. Call me crazy, but that’s my favorite style of inlays evah produces by Hamer.

Damn, I was going to make a comment about the acoustic voice of the fret markers.

It plays very good, other then a fretboard cleaning the guitar look like it left the factory last week. The the guitar sound more strat like then shredder , don’t know if it’s the alder body and or the EMGs. Always on the fence on EMGs , they have great articulate voice on clean to semi distorted tones , but when you crack up the gain the all sound the same . I’ll get a few more pics posted this weekend . It a great looker and player. It’s Gonna be around for a while. 

@cmatthes the serial number on this one is only 6 numbers away from your old Standard .

 

i had a 92 Cali deluxe in the black and gold granite finish . Sold it to another HFC’er in Chicago , wish I had not sold that one too. If you wanna sell it back let me know .

  • I kinda miss that one - my first custom-ordered Hamer!    Wonder where that is now?  I lost track...

The other cool feature on this particular model is the subtle scallops in the cutaways. I have two of 'em. A black cherry sparkle and a black sparkle with flakes that are more gold than silver.

Great score, Bruce.

Isn’t that the guitar Nick had here? If it is, I did play it. For some reason I didn’t like the lead tones I got from it on Nick’s amp. However, it produced a very modern rhythm sound, very dense and powerful. Congratulations!
