I'm sure I got jobbed on the price, $479 w/ hardshell case, but I put a deposit on a korina finish Hamer Explorer copy. fat 50s style neck, no major defects at all, still has the stock "Duncan Designed" pups that I have no idea about, but it played great, its dead on set up, high e is a tiny bit off intonation, but half a twist will fix it. No pics yet, but can anybody point me to a Hamer serial decoder? Nobody is quite sure what year this thing is. We think its a 90s, but noone knows

Try this? If it does not work I can try to find another decoder.

I don't know if there is a Korean Hamer serial # decoder. I suppose you could try the Hamer board (https://www.hamerfanclub.com/forums/) but again, it's Korean so I don't know if they'd have kept track. Hamer USA Standards are worth a lot of money...

I have a Hamer Korean V. Awesome player. Wished I would have kept the Duncan designed pups. They sounded better than the JB set I replaced them with. Assumed mine was 90's too

There is a '97 MIK explorer on ebay. Maybe compare you serial # to that one.
Well, the good news is if that price is realistic I might have got a decent deal
