I think that the pups might be the low hanging fruit, though I think they are usable I realize it is either veneer or photo top? I actually prefer my Special neck as I have small hands. I paid on Friday after speaking with WMS and they shipped that day You might find one with a neck to match your FM. Quality is fine; still play it often.

Everything is put together well. Returns hour approval on most items. There’s moderate hum but they’re either muddy or shrill. And what is the body construction I guess they were built in Korea and Indonesia. I certainly know the USA special is much more guitar but I have a set of pu’s already that I would like to drop in it and thought the XT would be a good donor. The guitar plays well but tuning isn’t terribly stable. Posted April 11,
Just for reference I mostly play my Echotone Aztec Swt.

It has been a long time since trying out an XT series Hamer. The price of admission was a decent deal as the guitar is put together well with nice fretwork for an Indonesian guitar.

Which brings us to this one.
Overall, the guitar looks great and cosmetics are about on par with Korean Epis. My Echotone neck is about 14″ radius with a Finish work was pretty well done though there was an extremely slight binding blem on the upper side Everything is put together well.
Do appreciate the advice though!

Superior in most way to most imports in this price range. You are responsible for any import duties, V. Again all opinions are appreciated! Fretboard radius isn’t great for me and in combination with the large frets and high action – bends tend to slide out from under your finger if you aren’t heavy handed. The action is a bit high and will be lowered once the bridge pup is anchored properly.
Hamer XT Series Sunburst Archtop P-90 (SATP90)
The bridge P90 was somewhat floating and not anchored by the screws – I have yet to address this issue as I haven’t had time and it didn’t impact my test run. I got into the cavity and I’m pretty sure this has a nice maple cap on it. What about sa differences between Chinese, Korean and Indonesian? Really not impressed with the electronics.
