What is the “G.C.” on the headstock?

My understanding is that they weren't an actual model, and weren't produced in any significant quantity, but were prototypes (?) for a GC line.  I'll have to check on the year of Matt's "GC" model above, but I know that at one point in the late '90s/early '00s, Hamer was being courted by GC to fill a void when/if they dropped Gibson.

Its got a 87 serial number. I would say late 87 time frame. I had a 87 Chaparral that I sold to another HFc'er that was only approx. 250 numbers away from this one. They were all spec. out the same other then the head stock logo & an ebony fretboard. This popped up on eBay a few years back, very dirty , missing the Floyd & all the cover plates as well.  it been played quite a bit, some one had a Roland pickup installed in it at one time.
