Hamer has long been one of the most underrated guitar makers around. The value that you get for the quality (USA made) is remarkable. The artist model is a very versatile guitar, excelling in a wide variety of music styles, from jazz, rock, blues, and alternative. The guitar can deliver smooth cleans like a 335 or can scream like a Les Paul. Many refer to Hamer as a "Gibson killer". I pretty partial to 335's but, for the money, Hamer's can't be beat.
