A guitar store shut down around 20 years ago. The stock that didn't leave on "fire sale" went into climate controlled storage and just came out less than two weeks ago. This is a 1995 Hamer Phantom Custom in literally new condition- the Hammer tag is still hanging from a tuning peg. I don't need to go into details because if your interested in this guitar then you know them better than me. It is 100% original.  Seymour Duncans are all rock. You can barely feel the curl of the curly maple under the finish as you run you finger tips over it. This guitar does has a fair case of "Hameritis" around the neck joint but not on the neck. The only cosmetic issue with this guitar is a tiny ding around 3mm long and under 1.5mm wide just below the tip of the volute on the treble side, I can measure it if requested. This must have happened in the store, it is clearly not new. I examined this guitar 3 times before I noticed it- see pic. The frets have no play wear but could use some fine steel wool to make them pop just as the fret board needs some fretboard oil to bring it back to life. I would do it myself but I like it with the original strings on it. A players preference fine tuned setup could be done but the neck is so strait and the action is so low that it needs nothing. I just sold a '97 Phantom from this same heard and the action is actually better on this one- which is saying a lot. Almost all of the guitars of this lot of around 150 were hastily thrown into whatever case they would fit in. When I find it I will offer it to the person that purchases this guitar for the cost of shipping, it could happen as soon as tomorrow or in two weeks. He is in his 60's, not a guitar player, and is moving through this slow. As of now the guitar will be wrapped and packed to come to you safely and in the exact condition as it is now. The pictures shown were taken outside in the sun before I had a chance to wipe the dust off. Any shipping cost/amount that exceeds $80 for this guitar will be refunded to its purchaser and as per eBay's recommendations (Items over $750) it will require an acceptance signature upon arrival- I recently had an unfortunate issue come up. Please follow me as a seller because as these guitars keep coming I will keep posting them.
