Hamer, Building an American Legend


In celebration of their 30th anniversary, Hamer has collaborated with Hollywood to create a documentary on the company and its unique contribution to the history of American guitars.

The 30-minute piece, titled: Hamer, Building an American Legend, was the brainchild of producer Mike Brady, who has made films about Nike, Kodak and Mercedes Benz. Brady felt that Hamers pivotal role in guitar history was tailor-made for a documentary-style film.

The film features interviews with industry experts, musicians and journalists, as well as with company founders Jol Dantzig and Frank Untermyer. Archival photos and current footage is used to put Hamer's remarkable history into perspective.
