Hamer's unique 12 string bass design caused a stir when it first arrived in 1977.  This model brought straight up rock looks and a sound you can't get anywhere else.

This example is 100% original and is in excellent condition.  We checked it out as we do all our instruments, taking plenty of pictures for you in the process.  We also check the truss rod to make sure that there is room for future adjustment.

There are no repairs or issues with the bass.  Included is what we assume is the original case.
