    FMIC destroys another classic brand - no more Hamer

    FMIC has a track record of buying classic brands like Fender, Guild, Gretsch, Jackson, Hamer, etc.... Once they own the brand they simply make low end imported junk carrying the classic label.



    As someone who grew up loving the classic guitars it's frustrating to see "instruments" of such low quality carrying the cool brand names. From what I understand Fender doesn't even make American amplifiers anymore. It's sad.



    Anyway, say goodbye to Hamer.

    Sure they might be fine guitars, but according to their Wikipedia page, I don't see any official changes they might have made to the game.

    I used to say - if you want a Gibson, try Hamer first. Their sunburst and studio guitars are much much better instruments for the money than Les Pauls.



    Sad news. On the second thought, may be it's better to close down completely, than bury your reputation importing mostly low-to-mid cost Asian guitars, like what's happening with Charvel for example.

    This is the one I remember wanting in the 90s.







    I guess there you go. The proof is in the pudding. You can't gripe about a company closing down when you yourself were part of the problem, you didn't buy any...



    I faced this with my store being bought buy a large chain.



    "Man you guys were so cool back when you guys carried ______ and _____. Now you carry all this normal boring ****************.



    Ya those were great lines, what ______ did you get?



    Oh I didn't buy any...





    GRINDS ME GEARS.

    This is the longest discussion about Hamer guitars to take place anywhere in the last 25 years.



    We are changing the game.

    I always pronounced it Hay-mer, with the accent on the first syllable.

    I think it ended up being a channel changer.



    Not that there's not a lot to love about a wraptail set neck short scale single P90 guitar.



    But, yeah, it looks, vaguely familiar.



    Oh, wait...you can change the intonation of the third string separately.



    GAME CHANGER!
