Keep hearing great things about these guitars, especially pre 1994 Studio, Specials etc. Very pricey on the market. Never owned one. Are they as great as people say they are? and why weren't they more popular?
This. I have an early 90's Special (see default pic) I picked up 15 years ago for $450. A steal.I gotta be honest, I'm puzzled by the 'high price' comments - I've seen even the checkerboard Sustain Block Studios for under $1,000, and early 90's P-90 Specials for under 600, just sitting there - no action at all on the Bay, and on CL too.
Still really cheap for very well built guitars.
When you see what you get new for $4-500, these are unbelievable bargains.This. I have an early 90's Special (see default pic) I picked up 15 years ago for $450. A steal.
I guess when they started the Slammer series the old USA Hamer rep took a hit.I agree with Tommy... Hamer USA is probably still one of the best sleeper options out there... I dont know what people expect, $250 USA stuff?
I abs. LOVE the 14" radius, great for bending and VERY easy to play. I love Hamers, my Nr1 Brand, unbelievable quality at ridiculous prices. I don't see prices having increased the least over the last 10 years ever since I started playing Hamers.The only complaint I regularly hear is that some people are just not comfortable with the 14" radius fretboards.
