1978 Sunburst Custom revisited

Recommended Posts

I finally got time to take some shots of the 1978 Hamer Sunburst Custom i recently picked up in Copenhagen. November weather here, very gray today, and dull. But the shots turned out good. Enjoy!

I adjusted the neck which had some buzz. It's 100% dead straight. So I had no problem getting a great low action on her. I don't know if the frets ever have been polished, but they are in good condition. No cowboy chord wear, they look fine all over the fretboard. The neck is wider than on any other Sunburst I've played, more of a nice C shape than a D. Very nice rosewood fretboard. The top is almost quilted and has a nice flame. It's not heavy, but not super light either. Rosewood shimed bridge. A damn fine Sunburst!

Awesome!  Looks like it's a couple of years old, not 40.  Thanks for the photos.
