Birds Fly

Some of you are currently preparing to travel to Chicago to get to know a little more about our early roots, meeting, playing guitar and celebrating with Paul Hamer and some members of the old Hamer crew. The New Hartford contingent, many of whom are Chicago transplants, isn’t going to be able to make the trip but wishes you the best in your journeys!

We’ve been staying busy completing this bird, which is beautful in its simplicity and harks back to some of our earlier days.  As for color…

It buffed out nicely.

Reverse peghead, mother of pearl logo, Schaller machine heads.

Seymour Duncan zebra ’59 pickup, single 500K volume control and a Tone Pros wrap around bridge.

Clean neck joint with full fingerboard support.

The cup jacks have worked out nicely.

Bursted all over.

Made in the USA – a clear preference.

This bird’s ready to wing its way to its new home. If you are winging your way (or however you may travel) to Chicago, enjoy the Windy City.  We’ll be thinking of you.

  5. Very nice. It cool to see Hamer bring back a few models as custom orders. Great work as always.

    I’m not a big fan of one-pickup guitars (the last one I owned was a 1990 Charvel I bought at a pawnshop and sold – at a profit one month later, no less – ’bout ten years ago). That said, this is one fine-lookin’ axe, indeed!

  7. I love the Reverse headstock look. Tim
