    Awesome! Very jealous here. Beatiful workmanship.

    I had a '94 USA Hamer Special for about 20 years. Only guitar I've ever regretted selling. Built to last.

    You a going to love it. The quality of USA Hamer's are amazing. See my Avatar, the Hamer has been with me for 20+ years and it is going nowhere.

    Just stunning. I’ve wanted a Hamer double cut ever since I got a copy of The Guitar Handbook in 1982 which had Andy Summers playing one. Yours is much nicer than his!

    Very nice! I had a '96 that was similar (mine was cherry sunburst) and it was a fantastic guitar. Mine had a bevel on the back (tummy cut) as well as that Wilkinson wrap-around bridge.

    I've had a bunch of guitars over the years, but only maybe 3-4 that I've regretted letting go of after they were gone. That '96 Hamer Studio is one of the few I've regretted selling.

    I had a few old Sunburst models years ago. Amazing guitars. Would have kept one or two but I found the necks rather thin.

    They are amazing and so is your one! I have wanted one just like that for years but few and far between in the UK, sadly.

    Oh yeah...that is nice, VERY nice! JB/59 pup combo?

    A current Hamer owner myself (93 Special), and a former owner of some others, which I regret selling.

    Looks fantastic. Congratulations...!!

    I have an Indonesian-made XT with P90's and love it. Yours, I suspect, will be awesome.

    The guitar is amazing, most comfortable neck I've had my mits on.....she sounds and feels far better than she looks!

    This guitar is AMAZING! Best neck I've gotten my mits on, and a very lively, nuanced and varied range of tones. I was planning on replacing the pups as I have a guitar with the SDJB/59 combo and find it very boring.....not so in this beast, sweet, shimmery to very haunted cleans, and all flavors of gain, from mild grit to full on flamethrower......and I still find my jaw on the floor when I look at her!

    Wow, it's really light. Beautiful guitar.
