Summary: Plugging in, this Hamer Sunburst reveals an impressive level of sustain. The bridge pickup is bright and punchy, while the neck pickup is warm and jazzy. You can get all the sounds you want and expect from this style of guitar. The balance of light and dark is perfect for slightly overdriven riffs and slap-happy rockabilly and country licks. If you’re looking for a double humbucker classic-style solid body, this Sunburst should be on your radar.

Body: Solid mahogany with a maple top, cream binding, gloss finish.

Neck: Mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard, pearl dot inlays, 22 frets, 24.75” scale length, 1 5/8” nut width.

Pickups/Hardware: Grover 3-per side tuning keys, original Dimarzio humbuckers, one tone/two volume knobs, 3-way pickup selector.

Cosmetics: This guitar’s condition is consistent with an instrument bult in 1979. There are a couple small dents here and there in the edge of the body and the top of the body. The back has light buckle rash. There are a couple small scratches on the top of the body seen only in a reflection. The mahogany on the back of the body has aged beautifully. There is one small dent on the back of the neck near the 3rd fret. (See Photos)

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.
