    Default FS 1983 Hamer USA Vector

    1983 Hamer USA Vector. Original Dimarzio made ďHamer SlammerĒ pickups. Hot PAF style, does a killer early Judas Priest tone. Hamer sustain block trem that has been blocked 100%. Iíve played it as a fixed bridge for the entire time Iíve had it, 10+ years with no issues.

    Neck is thinner than I prefer. Not super shredder thin like an Ibanez Wizard, but with a flatter profile than I like. Knobs are replacements but the originals are included. Original neck pickup ring was cracked so I replaced it but the original is included as well.

    Iím going to call it a light to medium relic condition. Itís got several paint chips, some down to the wood, some have been ďtouched upĒ with paint thatís not quite a match. Couple of extra holes from a strap button relocation, different tuner installation, etc. No trem back plate or trem arm.

    Comes with a hard case that has been ďmodifiedĒ by someone who got creative with some paints. Itís an interesting look for sure but the case is solid.

    Overall, the guitar is solid, a killer playing and sounding V that I would keep if it had a thicker neck. 35 year old mahogany sounds amazing.

    $1,400 shipped OBO. If in the Chicago area wil drive to meet up. Additional pics on request. Ask any and all questions. This thing is a straight up rocker and needs to be played. And you donít have to worry about gigging it because itís already been broken in.

    Bump for a cool guitar.

    Are you a member of the Hamer Fan Club forum? The HFC is definitely the place where that blue V will get some love (and maybe a buyer).

    I dig the case, too.

    I am and I have it posted over there, too. There’s been some interest and a potential buyer but no money has exchanged hands yet. So, it’s still up for grabs.
