For me, they had the most mojo of any era.

I love them too...! I still have a 1981 Hamer Special that I bought new in 1981.. And I have a strap and a case to match the checkerboard head stock..

Great guitars, wish I could play 'em but wrists/fingers lock up whenever I play thinner necked instruments. I'm envious of all you that don't have this issue - I'd own a ton more Hamers if it weren't the case...😩

Same symptoms for me too.  The vintage carves worked better than the modern carves.

This was originally a beat to shit 1981 black special that someone had painted over a beautiful red, drilled holes for a synth pickup and tried to recess the straplocks. I bought off someone here about 15 years ago. Fresh out of the shop with some Fralin P-92s!!!
