    Wow - that thing is awesome looking. They make such great guitars. Now, you should run down to the DMV and get a license plate that says "PRSKLLR"...... :Devil

    Peso,
    I can't believe you're coming to the Gear page and taunting these folks with that beautiful new Hamer... It's outstanding and so you! Enjoy

    Amazing, I really dig the color and the zebra pickups.

    A few questions. .

    1. About how much $? (email me if necessary)

    2. How long was the wait time?

    3. How much does it weigh?

    thanks!

    I'd be interested in knowing about the wait time and cost, too.

    Also custom is the strat-style pup switch. Those normally have a three-position switch on teh bass side of the guitar.

    Incredible looking guitar. That blended neck heel really looks like it'd be very playable.
