Recommended Posts

How much better/worse condition is the black Special compared to the red Special?  In what ways?

                                               Cool guitar! A gold sustain block is a rarity.........................I almost bought a 1980 [If I remember right] Black Sunburst early on when I joined the HFC that had gold       hardware. GLWTS!

You can look on reverb we bought the beat up black one last night.  We are going to leave it as is, it is an honest relic, played hard and put away wet!

That black one has been owned by at least a half dozen HFCers that I know of, myself included.  

It sports one of the smallest necks i have ever seen on a guitar built for adults.

That one kinda freaks me out a little every time I see it come up for sale, just because it looks so much like mine. (Well, except for the non-checkerboard headstock.)

I had it in '08. The neck is transparent. (ETA: NOT the one that's for sale).

Okay, that's it. Next time it comes up for sale I'm going for it.

Just got the 1981 Black special,  measured the neck thickness it is .736 on the first fret and .847 on the twelfth fret.

I agree with you guys, this is the thinnest Hamer Special neck I have ever seen.  after a few adjustments it plays really well.    

Still not sure if I like a really thin neck, I'll have to play it a while to see if its a keeper.
