Sometimes One P-90 is All You Need
Some of the most iconic guitar performances were played with a P-90 single-coil pickup in the bridge position, and that's exactly what you get with the Hamer Special Jr. solidbody electric guitar. The Hamer-designed dog-eared P-90 pickup delivers punch and midrange complexity, and its articulate nature is enhanced by the set-in neck joint and stop tailpiece. And modern players are sure to be impressed by the fast and smooth feel of the Thin U neck profile. When your music calls for a simple setup and classic tone, reach for the Hamer Special Jr. guitar.
Thin U neck shape for a modern feel
While Hamer has been building exceptional instruments since the 1970s, the Special Jr. is aimed at modern players that prefer a sleek, fast feel. The mahogany neck boasts a Thin U profile that stays out of the way when you're playing fast arpeggios and big runs across the entire fretboard. And the ivoroid binding on the neck doesn't just look classy, it creates a much smoother feel when you're moving your hand up and down the fretboard.
Set-in neck for impressive sustain and note definition
The Hamer Special Jr. delivers impressive sustain and outstanding note definition. The set-in neck maximizes vibrational transfer. Combined with your favorite fuzz pedal or overdriven tube amplifier, the Special Jr. sings loud and proud.
