Available Now at Nick’s Hand-Picked we have a 1982 Hamer Sunburst in a killer Cherry Red finish with Black binding! Rather unique compared to the more common “sunburst” colored Hamer Sunbursts but true to early Hamer fashion, this guitar features a beautiful solid flamed maple top paired with a double set of white DiMarzio Humbuckers. Build wise this guitar consist of a 1-piece mahogany body and a 3-piece mahogany neck. A rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dot inlays rounds out aesthetics! This guitar is in fair condition cosmetically with signs of consistent play wear. Well loved for 38 years now, small chips in the finish along with several small dings can be found on the body and neck. Finish checking on the front of the body can be found on the right side, please see photos. Structurally this guitar is in great condition - No major breaks, cracks, or repairs affect playability! This Hamer feels quality in the hands just like a true American-made vintage guitar should. It was Hand-Picked and is ready to find a new place to call home!
