This exquisite specimen of handcrafted skill and artistry is #46 of only 72 built for a 1997 limited run. The Hamer USA Vector Korina limited edition run is complemented by a matching Hamer USA Standard Korina limited edition run of only 96 built in 1995 (see our other listing--we have #19 of this model as well!). Both models are stunning and hearken back to the historic 1958 Gibson Flying V and Explorer Korina models. Their release struck the world with their wild shapes and bold statements, paired with a newfound type of guitar beauty. Never before fulfilled by a custom builder, Hamer was the first to show the world just how incredible the Korina Flying V and Explorer could look in modern times. Featuring the most well-cured wood stock on the planet, these guitars are remarkably stable and solid, with the sound and feel of the most top notch guitars on Earth. Hamer Rocks! Tone to the Bone! These two guitars have been residing in our shop since we got them directly from the Hamer factory in the '90s, and have been revolving from our shop (out of public reach) to our vintage guitar museum on the top floor of our building ever since. They are truly wondrous to behold, which is why we don't mind hanging on to USA Hamers for a good long time...because once they're gone--they're gone!

Great service! Great guitar! Well packaged! Bought new and came with all expected 'case candy'. Finish on guitar probably a 4/5 as there was a little grit caught in the finish on the lower horn, and it could have been better sanded around the routed jack opening and on the tremolo bar routed grooves. Very quick, thin neck. Tree of Life inlay very nice and leaf patterns actually conform to normal dot/block locations, something I had never noticed. A standout guitar for playability and looks.
