I snagged this bad boy from a GC in CT. Its a 2005 HAMER Standard done up in 59 burst flametop.

Its loaded with Seymour Duncan 59ers, Schaller tuners, Tone Pros hardware and a beautifulygrained rosewood fretboard inlaid with MOP traps!

It has a pretty beefy 50s neck, more C shaped.

I expected 10-11 lbs, but was surprised to weigh it at 9.3 lbs! The balance is pretty good considering the size of the neck. The action is wonderfully low, neck is perfect, just a frog hair of relief.

The top is STUNNING! The GC picture did not show nearly the amount of flame...i was pleasently surprised!

Awesome tone...i'm not a big fan of 59ers, but they do sound decent in this guitar...i let you judge from the clip. I'm very happy, especially for the price.

Congrats!

Slightly off topic, but looking at your sig I've gotta ask: The new kid not withstanding, what normally gets more play time: your Heritages or your Hamers?

I've owned a lot of Hamers but never a Standard. Nice score. Ditch those '59s now!

Thanks so much for the compliments fellas. I'm really appriciating that Hamer quality. Between this guitar and the 78 sunburst, it's mind boggling.

Always loved the Standard. It just feels so comfortable to me regardless of sitting or standing. Nice find for sure!
