    I was in a pawnshop a couple weeks ago and I saw a black Hamer Slammer with a pricetag that I THINK said $79.

    I'm not overly familiar with Hamers but it looked like a decent P copy. I'm thinking about trying to get back to the shop and see if its still there.
    If nothing else, it looks like a good candidate for a beginner's modding platform. On that note, does anyone know if the pickup is standard Fender sized?

    Assuming the neck's not totally shot, this seems worth it to me.

    Opinions, anyone??

    Good price if the bass is sound. Hamer "Slammer" is their import budget line, kind of liks Squier is to Fender.

    I have a Hamer SLAMMER "one octave up" 6 stringer BASS...okokokokok it is a guitar, but you all wanted to know about SLAMMER's? It WAS ALSO CHEAP, under 100 bucks, and it is as good as any "low end" that any company makes. I DID have a SLAMMER bass for a while a long time ago, and never had a problem with it for fit/form/action/tone, and playability, like any "cheaper" line of instruments from any company.

    for 79 bucks, hell ya go get it!!!! :D:D

    That exact bass was the first bass I ever got and I still own it. I'd say it's worth 79$, it sounds pretty good and plays decently. Great beater bass, go for it.
