Any Hamer fanatics in the joint?

New to the forum, wondering if there are any Hamer junkies hanging out. I'm an old school Hamer guy, love the 70s/early 80s axes... love to see anyone's pix.

Re: Any Hamer fanatics in the joint?

No neither one is... I was looking for a Standard when I found the Korean on Craigslist....and found the XT Korina on ****... got great deals on both....

So, got the two imports for less than one American...

Of the 90's, and the much more recent XT series, I like the 90's Korean way better, and I'd have to say, it plays better than a new, stock Gibson.

The XT, at first, disappointed me, because I could see a few quality issues I didn't see on the Korean...minor, barely visible things, but I saw them...

The XT had a fatter neck, and because it's Korina VENEER....over a solid maple body, I found that I'm now getting a real Gibson SG sound from it.

I paid $300 for each, had to buy a case for only one of them, the other having the original Hamer case....
