    I finally found a closet classic. This is a 1995 Hamer Eclipse and it is as clean as the day it left the factory. Not even a pick swirl on her. Picked this up last week, and while waiting for its arrival bought a few parts to hot rod it with. Faber compensated wrap bridge, TonePros locking studs, ReWind Dynamo pickups. Here's a couple quick shots, one before and a couple of after. Killer one-piece Honduran hog body with killer grain. With the tummy and forearm cuts, this thing is just disappears underneath you as you play it. Tone monster indeed.

    Awesome. I bet it's great!

    I almost started my Hamer journey with an eclipse, but I held out for a studio thinking it was better and not just different. :)
