|When Hamer was a small privately owned
company they manufactured many cool guitars that they discontinued
in the 90's, when they went corporate. We took the basic cosmetics
of this guitar and left them alone. We decided that we would stick
with the exact scale of the Virtuoso but that's where we stopped.
Some of Ed Roman's Improvements include
1 Now available neck thru body Instead of set neck.
This adds tremendous stability and much more tone quality & improves
sustain. (This is especially good on a super long
neck like this guitar has)
2 We still offer the scalloped neck that was standard
on the Virtuoso but we give you the option to only scallop part of
the neck or not too scallop it at all
3 Naturally we offer a full complement of pickup
choices, bridge choices, fingerboard & body-wood choices unlike
Hamer ever did.
4 The headstock shape on the original wasn't very
complementary to the rest of the guitar. You can see our headstock
page and choose any headstock you like absolutely free !!! Or
design your own.
5 We also offer this guitar in 10 other body shapes
!!!! Again you may design your own.
