    Sad to see so few Chaparalles. I`d love to pick up a decent Hamer V and Explorer someday. Might have to settle for a few Deans till then. And my 92 Gibson Explorer.

            No, I've had this one a few years. I bought it used at a guitar show for $800. Best money I've ever spent.

              Anyone ever seen one of these before? When I first got I took it to my local guitar place, Lightning Joe's Guiar Heaven, and Joe was just putting away a limted edition (1 of a 1000) Les Paul Custom that he had just finished working on. He plugged in my new, old Hamer and played it for 10 minutes or so.
              When he stopped he looked over at me and said, "This has better tone and waaaay more sustain than that Les Paul I just put away."
              I'll post the pix linx tonight!

                        I'd attribute the sustain to the Sustain Block bridge that usually comes with 80's Specials... And of course, I can't say i'm surprised to hear that the Hamer came out tops compared to Gibbies...

                        Do you have the serial number of the thing? You could actually email Hamer with the serial number and sometimes they actually still have record that guitar!!

                        • Hey Hamer Heads, ever seen one like this? Me either, til I bought. Owner of one of the most amazing guitar stores in California told me it blows away most Les Pauls in tone and sustain. Whatever. I love it. Plays like buttah!

                              I'm not a big fan of gold hardware but any Hamer is a good Hamer...

                              Also, i think this is the first time i've even heard of a Gold sustain block! Cool...

                              All this talk of specials just increases my GAS further.....

                              • I'm a HAMER Buff and have been playing them since 97 when they moved to my home state of CT. My FIRST was a Artist Custom in Honey which i will show photo's of later. Then came a Studio 95. Then a Newport-Pro. Then a T-62 93 that was the third one built and FIRST in Sunburst. BUT............THIS is the one that has been illusive. I almost bought a Brand new 96 in the beginning of 97 for $1599. in Transparent BLUE. Instead I bought the ARTIST CUSTOM. I have looked for another for 10 YEARS in BLUE and have seen ONE! That was on the Hamer Forum and NOT for SALE. This one here? You will NEVER EVER see another one like this ONE either! This is a SERIOUSLY TRICKED OUT MIRAGE II. The pick-ups are Custom Built by the Man himself Mr. DiMarzio. Take a look at this PORN. I was looking for a PRS and came across my Dream Guitar. And I'll tell you why. I have sine 97 increased my playing skills with a Trem, 10-fold. Back then I really didn't need a Trem. But NOW.....with me its really a needed option on the electric I ACTUALLY PLAY. Another issue is a 25-1/2 scale? I just prefer the Fender scale and LOVE its Tone with Humbuckers especially on a 22fret electric. This MIRAGE meets ALL these requirments. They no longer build the MIRAGE nor do they build the T-62 or T-51. BTW guys a Rosewood fretboard T-51 is another Hamer I have been looking for that I foolishly missed years ago. {having a little problem with PHOTOBUCKET} I'll get back to you guys SOON!
                                Damn Right I got the BLUE'S

                                Ordinary . CAN BE . EXTRAORDINARY.. follow your DREAM!
