    found this baby fairly local to me. Have been back and forth with the seller for a while because of the fact that it has a headstock repair. Finally we agreed on a price and she’s mine. Don’t see many of these out there. It’s a Hamer Prototype. Not in great condition, has wear and tear but the neck is hands down THE best neck I have ever played. The pickups give you all the variety you would want as well.

    I have nothing but love for Hamers.
    If only I could find a lefty one.
    TJ found one for me, one time, but I didn't have the money.

    Sweet! Haven't seen anything like that before.

    I always wondered how I'd like a single coil right above the bridge bucker.

    Clips would be awesome if you get around to it!

    Very interesting arrangement on the pups here. I don't know much about Hamer's but it looks pretty cool.

    Love the pickup arrangement. I've never seen anything like it.

    How do you like the single coil there?
