So I have a funny story about these shirts.

I bought a couple of them back when @cmatthes designed them in the early 2000s, and one night when my band played another opening showcase gig at Jaxx nightclub in Springfield, VA, I was wearing it after I got offstage and went to mingle in the crowd post-show.

This guy with a hot girlfriend comes over to me at the bar and says, "Hey, were you the bass player in that band that just played?"

And I am ready to accept all the accolades for how bitchin' I am that he is surely about to tell me I am.

Instead I get, "Just wanted to tell you I really LOVE that shirt. Where can I get one?"

Story of my life.

I never got the green light for the t-shirt artwork for the “Vollmer Fan Club” I did back then!  😉

Hey, the drummer and namesake of the band had a wife that was an artist, so she handled all the merch.

No bid contracts are a blight upon democracy!

I think she was so pissed that we were chatting about it that she sharpied over the Bass player’s face in the band’s Jaxx’ Wall of Fame portrait!  😆

At least, it's not a Gildan!

He's selling a beautiful 92 Sunburst on Reverb, too.

A „10top“, easily, or even 1 more?

Price maybe a little too optimistic as well.

Not for no $110! If the letters are 'mostly' gone $65.50 is as high as I'll go.

Please send pics of front and back and closeups of pits.

Not quite Hamer shirt related, but it does involve a bass player and a lady at a local gig/jam a few years back. As I came off the stage, a lady who had been playing bass earlier came up and asked if she could take a picture. So, I sez, "Sure, how would you like me to pose?" "Off to the side....I just want a picture of your guitar!"

Sheebus!  I've got the CMatthes Tee, the polo, an employee (?) varsity jacket and employee windbreaker.  The shirts probably have pit stains (a big plus for certain member, apparently).  There we go.  My retirement nest egg is fully funded 😉

I checked my closet and I still have a black short sleeve fan club t-shirt along with a Hamer windbreaker that I won as a door prize at one of the Muse Cafe gatherings about 20 years ago. I used to also have a white long sleeve fan club t-shirt, but it got pitted out years ago and now only exists as rags for cleaning and painting projects.

I'm reasonably sure that guitar was ordered by me as a key-man endorser at Abney's Music in Orlando.  I remember taking the longer black tip off and putting the creme one on.  The Scarab he has looks like one they had a Paragon Music in Tampa for years.  They wanted list price.
