    Last year i bought my daughter a hamer short scale slammer bass for xmas from milford music
    i'm not a huge hamer fan since they moved the factory and discontinued the usa cruise but this bass absolutely kicks butt
    i keep meaning to "borrow" it and take it on a gig
    just a ^5 for a great product (available in black too for your 'lil metalhead wannabe) :ninja:

    Looks alot like a "Vantage" bass that I used to own. Neat!

    That is some serious gear! I play through an old Kustom tuck & roll head w/ a Harke 4x10 cab, but my budget for gear is "no budget", LOL, I can't even mention gear around the missus. :D

    I've been thinking about getting a short scale bass to play with certain songs that really give my left hand a workout. Is the Slammer SB4 a good deal? Is the flame maple finish a "foto finish", laminate, or what exactly is it? Will any hardware of electronics need to be replaced to make it giggable? Thanks. They are nice looking small scale basses I think.
