The finish is in great shape.  No chips, nicks or breaks.

I appreciate the messages and inquiries about the guitar and my intentions.  I'm happy to answer any questions but I'm not planning on selling it.

Some of you may know that I sold a lot of guitars last year, including all of my Hamers.  Just before the Holidays I found out that my job was being eliminated (along with virtually every other person in my department over 55, 🤔).  I wasn't destitute, but I had concerns about the immediate future and wanted to pay off all of my debt.  

I've been very fortunate to find a better job and all is well, but for the first time in over 3 decades I didn't own a single Hamer guitar. I bought my first in 1979 and I've always been most fond of the early 80's Specials and Sunbursts.  This one checks that box. Probably too much detail, but I wanted to put this out there.
