Got this one just recently. It's a Hamer "Slammer". Complete with 80's style hockey stick neck smile.gif Not to mention gold speckled red paint. smile.gif

The neck profile is very similar to my RG560 ibby. It needs some love but I hope to get it going quickly enough to record the rest of the Iron Maiden Collab smile.gif Whaddya think?

Looks pretty cool smile.gif I thought it was a Kramer at first. the head shape and even font kinda looks like Kramers ( from my memory anyways! )
What are you planning on doing to it, change the pickups?

You say 'minor pentatonic ' like it's a bad thing

Nice purchase, Todd! Looks like a keeper. smile.gif Is this the Indonesian made Slammer? Looks like the neck is slightly thinner than the Korean Hamer Cali version. With a little TLC and a nice set up these import Hamers are really awesome! Recently replaced the single coil with a 'lil 59 and it sounds so nice with the mahagony body. Pairs well with the Jason Becker humbucker too.


What is the silver/chrome toggle switch for?

It's actually really similar to some 80's kramer models smile.gif Plays very similar to my old KRAMER FOCUS, but the neck on the Hamer is quite a bit thinner.

Good Memory!! Yup smile.gif I had a Californian and sold it to a fellow GMCer DEGROOT!! smile.gif

I don't really own guitars, just tend them for a bit and pass them on smile.gif

The TOGGLE is a COIL TAP!!! smile.gif I plan to fix this one up a bit and sell it just like the Californian. Plays nice smile.gif Gonna give it some TLC and a setup and hopefully make a bit on it.
