Hamer "Special Jr." w Humbuckers

Here we go, first post! This modified Hamer Special Jr. was built in 2003 of African Limba wood, also known as "Korina". This hot rod originally came from the shop with a single Duncan P90 pickup. For a change of character I had the Duncan Antiquity humbuckers put in. (I have another Korina Special Jr, almost identical, but built in 2004 with two P90's.) Two pickups just makes for a more versatile, usable guitar for me. Playing No Doubt music, I spend a lot of time in the middle pickup selector position. Note the volume and tone knobs stolen from one of my old MXR stompbox pedals!
