Looks like KMC Music/Kaman bought the brand from Fender?

Great news anyway, I hope they will eventually also make some of the shred models again.

I guess Hamer went with KMC Music when Fender sold it to JAM Industries. With companies owning companies it's a little hard to follow.

As of now it looks like a more cautious approach with models on the cheaper side - all of them have only veneers for example. I´d love to see them bring back some of their "American" models made of good wood and parts. But I guess they take the other route like Charvel. Less of a risk that way.

I'd prefer the Chaparral or 27-fret Californian with flame maple body :)

I'm thinking this return is in name only.

They are probably some way off opening a custom shop.

They lost the old guys too, so it may last till they are there again (if they do it, that is).

Jol Dantzig is still in the business, they could try and tempt him back (even as a consultant) to give the operation some credibility.
