    ...or at least I think it is...
    Got this 1993 Hamer in the mail yesterday - after a quick clean and setup it plays great!
    Pups are the JB/59 combination, which are maybe a touch too hot for my taste, but they work well with my YJM for instance!

    Nice. I've got two Korean made Hamers's I love them both. Someday I'll snag a USA Hamer.

    81Special.jpg I have been a usa Hamer fan since I saw Martin Barre playing one many, many years ago. That and the fact it reminded of a Gibson '59 Special is the reason I bought a Hamer Special new in 1981.. I still have it too.. Checkerboard Headstock, Sustain Block Bridge and I bought a matching Checkerboard Case for it too...! Supposedly the case was made from left over material from Rick Neilson who was redoing some of his amps. But I have no proof of that. 005.JPG CheckerboardCase.jpg
