Embrace Classic Rock Tones & Incredible Playabilty with
The 'Special Jr' from Hamer

MXR Thump Bass Preamp Pedal

Classic shape. Iconic Tone. Introducing the revered 'Special Jr' from Hamer.

Some of rock’s most seminal guitar riffs were laid down with a P-90 single coil pickup in the bridge position, and that’s precisely what the magnificent Hamer Special Jr is here to serve up. The Hamer designed P-90 pickup brings solid punch and mids full of texture and colour, and it’s expressive character is brought to the forefront by the set neck joint and tailpiece, all of which makes for incredible sustain.

Players more aligned towards modern playing styles will fall in love with the smooth feel of the Hamer’s thin ‘U’ neck profiling. Sometimes, you need a simple setup with iconic tone, in these instances, the Hamer Special Jr should be your first port-of-call.

Punching P-90 Tone


superb upper fret access The Hamer Special Jr is a slightly smaller scale version of the classic sunburst version originally released in 1980, the main difference being that it doesn’t feature the binding and the arched top, and opts instead for a sleek natural finish which really serves to highlight the Special Jr's beautiful woodgrain.

The body shape features a double-cutaway design which helps to deliver unhindered access to the full 22 frets. The choice of wood used for the body on the Special Jr is solid mahogany, a medium-heavy wood which is often a popular choice with manufacturers due to it’s warm characteristics and great tonal depth.

The Special Jr sports a full-depth dovetail neck joint and combined with the P-90, the Special Jr resonates with the best of them. This guitar may look like a one trick pony, but what a ride it is!

A True Workhorse


Solid, Simple HardwareThe Special Jr is decorated in stellar hardware from top to bottom. From the diecast chrome tuners, which deliver rock-solid tuning stability and react to even the smallest of tuning adjustments, through to the tune-o-matic bridge with stop bar tailpiece, the Special Jr can take one hell of a beating and remain steadfast in it’s tuning. This guitar is a serious workhorse.

The U-neck profiling would suit players with larger hands, it fills the palm in a full and comfortable fashion and really does make for excellent string bends with great control over vibrato techniques.

The Special Jr’s fingerboard is made from Ebony, a popular choice for most modern guitars. Ebony fingerboards offer rich, warm tones, they’re extremely durable and will last a lifetime if looked after well, rather like the Hamer Special Jr itself. This is a guitar that if treated with love and care, will serve you for years to come.
