    Good guitars get played... sometimes hard. Just a guess.

    Hamers stand up to the abuse pretty well. If I want a players guitar a cosmetically challenged Hamer makes a great one. The quality is there without worrying about what it's getting exposed to in some bar. I've played some new/mint guitars at gigs but I'd rather take a player. I just wouldn't pay an unreasonable price for one.

    hamers are great guitars, and when you get a guitar that you play all of the time they can get abused. It's not abuse, just lots of use.

    Sorry my links don't work-these 2 pieces are WAY beyond "players"-the Standard has a crack that runs from the neck joint all the way down the body to the endpin, and the Sunburst is a FULL headstock break.

    I just pulled the item numbers from your links and did an eBay search on them to see the items:

    7360446657
    7360477905
     
  8. I guess there's a fine line between player guitar and shark attack!

    Cracked and busted guitars sure don't make good players. Dings, buckle rash, poor attempts at "upgrading", thats the stuff I could live with. If I'm looking for a practice/gigging guitar anyway.
