Thanks. Great guitar for the $400 I paid for it new!!! Funny enough, that is a 2017 re-issue Hamer Standard, non-USA made. Everything about it is stellar from the factory with the exceptions of the pickups and wiring. I put a '57 Classic/Classic + set of pickups in it, new wiring/pots/switch, and it was like lifting a blanket off the tone ...really opened it up. They apparently went back to the older Hamer spec, and Gibson swooped in and forced them to stop production before 2018. I think Hamer got away with the XT series standards for so long due to the huge headstock that line had ...but that's just conjecture on my part. The dealer I spoke with about the 2017's was pretty candid about their feelings towards Gibson for that move. Your new Explorer is very nice! Hope you bond with it. I really dig my explorer, especially the Ebony fretboard. Hope yours sounds as good as it looks!
