Hamer USA of New Hartford, CT is proud to announce the addition of the new Hamer Vanguard Korina model to its Vanguard series. This model was debuted at the Summer, Nashville NAMM show.

Related Frank Rindone, Hamer's Product Manager, "each year since 1996, Hamer has successfully introduced limited production guitars made of White African Mahogany, commonly known as 'Korina'. Now for the first time, we will be offering a Korina guitar as a regular production piece in the line, at a price that is sure to attract a lot of attention."

The Vanguard features a semi-hollow, two-piece Korina body that is capped with a bookmatched, arched "Chevron" Korina top with f-hole. The top is hand-carved both inside as well as out. Standard on this model will be two Seymour Duncan P-90 pickups. The Korina neck will feature a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dot inlays.

Available only in a Vintage Korina finish, with a retail price of $1699.00 with the hard shell case retailing at $135.00.
