Hello! We are now moving to a new house and when packing my bass gear I found my HAMER 8 string bass again and was about the model info photos It has a four digit serial number stamped into the wood: 0495 Is it one of those 680 custom instruments I´ve read about? It´s color is black/a bit olive-y... no idea how the hamer-name was for this color. Can you please help me finding out it´s production date (late 70s, early 80s?)? What is the name of this bass guitar? Simply Hamer 8 string? Thank you for your help! Regards mcfid/Austria @admin: thanks for editing!
