    Oh man - congrats!

    I had one just like that, only it was a Studio so it had a carved top. Otherwise basically identical. It was perhaps the best guitar I've ever had in my life. You're gonna love that thing :D

    Welcome to the club. That's a very nice way to join right there, she's a beauty. I will warn you though, once you realize how nice these guitars are you become addicted and before you know it they've multiplied like vermin. Ask me how I know.

    Congratulations. I used to have one of those Special FM/Special customs. Absolutely outstanding instrument.

    I have an FM special just like yours. Probably my favorite Gibson-ish guitar.
    These guitars just exude quality...

    Hey vbf,

    Congratulations on the new guitar. Hamer guitars are awesome. Like G Man said, I ended up buying a few more for my guitar collection.

    "multiplied like vermin" ROTFL!!

    I'll check out the Hamer forum. I just hope I don't catch the Hamer bug like I did with Heritage's. :)

    I've got the same guitar from 93', they are fantastic guitars and you can't beat used Hamer prices.
