That was quick, and rightly so. 

Every time I see one of these, I'm reminded of my MIJ Rabbit is Korina DC, one of my faves. Of course, it's not configured the same with the bridge HB, has a funky headstock (which I like) and I would never make the claim that it's "as good" as a Hamer. But it's light, resonant and plays like a dream. I find the pickup combo covers a lot of ground.

Did Hamer truly offer different neck carves in the early 2000’s, or was there simply variation due to the hand carved nature of their manufacturing?  I haven’t played enough of this era to know but would be surprised if there were different neck profiles produced (using different specs).

Yes, they had the thicker vintage carve and the thinner modern carve. I’m not sure of the exact years when they offered the two options. All of my mid 90’s Hamers were very similar and my old ‘01 Artist Korina HB was definitely THICC. I’ve never played a 2000’s Hamer with the modern carve as I naturally gravitate towards more wood in my hand… 😂

Well, after playing a Hamer 12ver I wouldn't find that junior to be a thick necked guitar 😎😁
