The Hamer Archtop Tremolo Electric Guitar Cherry Burst finish PRO-SCM setup
2017 was a proud year for Hamer Guitars as it marked the rebirth of America’s original boutique guitar brand — a line created in 1973 in Wilmette, Illinois by Paul Hamer and Jol Dantzig.
From humble beginnings handcrafting guitars in the back of their small Illinois guitar shop, Hamer went on to become the guitar of choice for acts spanning the globe, representing all musical genres and four decades of performing artists.
How about this for an Artist Roster: Aerosmith, Bad Company, Blackfoot, Blues Brothers, Bon Jovi, The Angels, Cheap Trick, The Cars, Def Leppard, Del Fuegos, Dire Straights, Eagles, George Golla, Sammy Hagar, Hall & Oats, Billy Idol, Jethro Tull, Billy Joel, Kiss, Huey Lewis & the News, Bruno Lucia, Gary Moore, Motley Crue, No Doubt, Neville Brothers, Night Ranger, Ted Nugent, Robert Palmer, The Police, The Pretenders, Judas Priest, Ratt, The Romantics, Savoy Brown, The Sex Pistols, Steve Simmons, Billy Squire, Third Eye Blind, Steve Vai, The Who, Wishbone Ash, Warren Zane and many others…pretty impressive!
This great iconic brand is back and already meeting the pent-up demand from a new generation of players with exact reissues of Hamer’s most popular models.
The Archtop Tremolo is based on the Hamer Studio body, the third classic Hamer design introduced in 1977. Upgraded with a solid Maple top on Mahogany body, the tone is beefy yet focused and a Dark Cherry Burst on figured Maple veneer results in a visually inspiring instrument.
The SATFW comes standard with a Wilkinson Tremolo and classic Hamer controls and switch orientation.
