I've been looking for a good P90 equipped guitar for a while. I came pretty close to going with Gibson's LP Special, but even on sale it's pricey and I just saw too many negative reviews. And then I found one that caught my interest. The Hamer Special K. This one has a korina (white limba) body & neck, 2, P90 p'ups and an ebony fret-board. Those are all good features and there are a couple good videos on these guitars, but very little in the way of reviews. So here we go. I read some discussion about a "thin U-shaped" neck and that is probably close to accurate. The neck is very similar to an LTD EC 1000. However, it feels good in my hands and not too (Ibanez shredder) thin. The fretboard is ebony, but there are some streaks in the grain that make it look like rosewood. Overall, the neck is fast and feels good. Only one fret edge feels like it needs to be smoothed out (2nd fret base side). The body has a nice wood grain and looks much better than the pictures indicate. The tuners are good quality and this guitar seems to hold in tune. It does have a wraparound bridge and appears to have some intonation adjustment screws on each side, and perhaps another between the B & G strings. This screw between B & G is on top of the bridge and I can't see what else it might be for other than intonation. This guitar is off 1 cent on the B string & 1 cent on the D string with the other strings perfect. The guitar is light...like 5.5 lbs! And just like the other guitar I have made from korina (PRS SE SC) the sustain is crazy good! The action is right where i like it. I normally don't care much for tortoise shell pick-guards, but it looks good on this model. So that brings us to the P90's. They literally have NO 60 cycle hum! Quiet in all 3 switch positions. But they do perform both clean and ESPECIALLY DIRTY! Great guitar! I'm really happy with it! Later, I might consider installing some fancy boutique p'ups, but for the now, these are more than adequate. Special K! A keeper!
