I've come over here from the Hamer Fan Club, because I found this thread with your awesome Centaura HH :)

I've been on the look out for one like this for a while...

...needless to say, if it becomes available - I'd love to talk to you about it.

In the meantime, its cool to see some Hamer love out there.

I'll be learning about Kramers on this forum :)


Good luck in finding an HSS Centaura you love - as a bit of motivation to find one you love, here are my two unique Centauras :)


Centaura Deluxe in Blueburst

Wonderful guitar, I always loved Hamers :headbang They built some of the best guitars ever made. Pity they closed their doors after Fender bought them.

But wouldn't that be a Diablo then? Diablo was H/H while Centaura was HSS from what I remember, otherwise pretty much identical.

Hey Benny, welcome to the Kramer forum :toast We love all nice shredders here, regardless of brand names...

All of those pics are of guitars with just beautiful finishes and I like the direct-mount pickup look as well. drool

BTW I'm dreaming of the solid flame-maple Californian with 27 frets, but those appear rarely and then always over $2k...

Ahhhhh, I’ll post some stuff about diablos vs Centaura when I get home, the Diablo has one slanted HB at the neck and central fret makers and typically an alder body. the Centaura HH (aka 2HB) has both pickups slanted, and at the reverse angle to the Diablo. Centaura variously made of alder (Centaura deluxe like my blue one) mahogany for anything with a solid finish, swamp ash for trans finishes. And offset smaller fret markers.

Diablo body shape is a bit closer to a Cali than Centaura but rounded off a bit more without the cutaway scallops so pronounced.

I’m lucky enough to have a solid figured maple Cali, I’ll post it when I can :)
