Hamer’s Artist series is based on their time-tested “uptown LP junior” design. A three-piece mahogany neck is contoured to classic Gibson proportions—well rounded, perhaps even plump—and fitted with a rosewood fretboard and 22 medium frets. The chrome hardware consists of Grover tuners, Straploc-ready strap pins and a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece. The mahogany LP Junior body has been upgraded with an arched top of mahogany rather than maple, which is usually found on Artist series guitars. A tuned resonance chamber beneath the top’s f-hole adds a touch of acoustic volume, and really goes to work when you plug the Vanguard in. The Vanguard is outfitted with two Seymour Duncan P90s: an Sp-902N and a 3-B in the neck and bridge positions respectively. Each has its own volume control, and these become interactive with one another when the three-way toggle switch is in its center position. A master tone control completes the circuitry. Individually, the Duncan SP-90s have a chimey and well-defined output with just a hint of throaty clunk
The guitar is in great condition with a bit of finish damage on the bass side of the headstock.
