The Hamer Sunburst Flat Top is still one of the most viable electric guitars for Weekend Warriors and those looking to jam. The Sunburst model name has a long history at Hamer, having originally graced the guitar that the company saw as its cleverly reconfigured, double-cutaway update of the Gibson Les Paul. Similarly, if confusingly, the model name Standard was given to Hamer’s early Explorer-like design due to its flamed top, sunburst finish and body binding. The ingredients in the Sunburst Flat Top will be familiar to most Hamer-philes. It includes a double-cutaway design, a flat (non-arched) flame-maple top in cherry sunburst on a solid mahogany back, a glued-in mahogany neck with an unbound ebony fretboard, a 24.75-inch scale length, through-body stringing via a six-saddle bridge and a pair of humbuckers.
