Product Details

Serial No. 453768, Includes Original case, Weight = 8 pounds 11 ounces, In the case are- Certificate, truss rod wrench, hang tag, case key, owner’s manual. Hamer were the 1'st "Boutique" Guitar makers. They ceased building in 2008 due to Fender acquiring their parent company & being too dumb to keep them going. This particular Monaco Elite is one of the finest we've seen & played, and it's about a pound "lighter" than typical.

We'd rate this absolutely beautiful USA crafted Hamer as "mint" condition but for some minimal- tiny-almost non-existent fret wear. From a smoke free, climate controlled environment. , and "babied."

We feel the Monaco Elites from the CT Hamer shop, under the direction of Jol Danzig are the finest single cutaway electric Guitars

made. The craftsmanship is brilliant, as is the Guitar's performance. It's simply among the very best ever. Some details"

From the Duncan site:

"Neck Humbucker:

The Duncan Custom is a medium output humbucker pickup that features a small ceramic magnet and custom-wound coils to dish out a ‘P.A.F.-on-steroids’ tone. It has tight lows, a bump in the upper midrange that gives you more character and crunch, and an airy high end that cuts through heavy distortion but is also great for achieving crystal-clear clean tones. It’s especially suited for warmer-sounding guitars with a prominent midrange. Therefore, many players like to use it in Les Pauls and Paul Reed Smiths.............or better yet- US made Hamers!! Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Duncan Custom medium output humbucker pickup is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance."

Bridge Humbucker:

The Custom Custom humbucker delivers that familiar alnico 2 warmth, along with the rich midrange harmonics of a hotter pickup. The result is a humbucker that sounds full and sweet, and has a warm lower midrange growl that really brings chords to life. The Custom Custom has a fatter treble response than any other pickup, and that gives solos a round, sweet, singing quality. Great for adding fullness and warmth to any humbucker equipped instrument. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Custom Custom medium output humbucker pickups use an alnico 2 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, are vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
