This troupe became Hamer Guitars.

Together they pioneered the "Modern Vintage" spirit and actually created the boutique guitar category. Today, Hamer Guitars is still a small, tightly-knit group of artisans committed to building instruments with undeniable character and flawless construction.

Each Hamer Guitar is truly hand-built.

Constructed in a manner unparalleled in the guitar industry. True to their roots, Jol and crew continue to define what an American guitar can be. We invite you to view and discover the difference between "good enough" and truly great. Come with us and join the few who dare to play the very best.
