Sanding is going to be fun because that finish is about as thin as the B string.  If the finish is raised on those spots you can take it down a little.  If the finish has sunk then you have to smooth out a lot more finish. 

A pro refinish would be worthwhile if you are going to keep that guitar. 

Stike is on the East Coast, and if you shipped him your guitar for a refinish or partial refinish he would be able to help you.  Someone closer to you out west might be able to do something.  There were different types of finish products for each layer/coat, so getting someone to match a Hamer factory finish (without Hameritis) is going to take someone who knows what to do. 

If you pass that guitar along as is let the next owner worry about what to do.
