Type: Electric Guitar
Hi Folks,

I have for sale my Hamer XT series Echotone semi-hollow electric guitar in transparent cherry. I bought this guitar last summer as a backup to my main guitar but I've never actually needed to use it. It's only been to a few rehearsals and one showcase so it's never been near a pub gig or any situation where it may come to harm so I think it's time it moved onto someone who is going to give it some proper action.

The only modifications I made were to replace the stock tuners for some Gotoh Rotomatic locking tuners, which improved the tuning stability no end. They've made the guitar slightly headstock heavy but it still settles at a very comfortable 45 degree angle on a strap. Other than that the hardware is all stock. Most of the pictures show the guitar with the pickguard off which was purely a cosmetic decision on my part as I liked having both f-holes visible.

The stock pickups are really suprisingly good. The bridge has plenty of bite for classic rock or country and the neck, with the tone rolled back a bit, will give you a great jazz tone. Mix the two together and you've got a great funk rhythm sound as well. I had anticipated changing the pickups out but decided it wasn't necessary in the end.

What really drew me to this guitar was the neck. I'd been looking for a 335 style guitar for a while but I'm very picky about neck width, and having tried out a Gibson (at 4x the price) I didn't think I'd find anything that I'd be happy with till I picked this guitar up. I'd describe the neck as a shallow D and I'm amazed that Hamer have it listed as a 14.5 radius as it doesn't feel wide at all. Needless to say, five minutes with this neck and you're running all over it. Chords are a breeze and leads just flow all over the fretboard.

The guitar will be shipped in a soft case but will be well packaged and I will use a courier service to ensure it is looked after.

Happy bidding.
