I have a 1996 Hamer B12s that is in need of a new paint job. I really want it to be white, like the B12s on www.12stringbass.net. I have attempted to contact Hamer, but it is Kaman, who represents them. They tell me that they wont take any instruments for refinishing, but I find it hard to believe that Jol Dantzig and crew would want their consumers to not be able to contact them, or that they would service one of their own products, even if it is just a paint job. I know I could get a million people to refinish it, but I want Hamer to do it. Plus I want the Headstock finished white as well, with Hamer written in larger black letters, like the old school Hamers used to have on them. Anyway, if you have a number or an email straight to Hamer or Jol himself, please pass along. I want to give them one more shot before I move on.
