Fender Ceases Hamer Production
The company which was acquired by Fender in 2007 will no longer produce instruments.
Founded in 1973 the brand went on to reach success and was seen in the hands of Judas Priest, Wishbone Ash and Jethro Tull. Fender has now suspended the production of all Hamer instruments to "focus its efforts on other brands in the company's portfolio" according to John Chermesino. He did go on to say that should the market ever call for Hamer again, they would consider making them.
“We will continue to service all consumer and dealer inquiries for warranty service and support for the Hamer product line,” he added. “Our Customer Service department will have access to the list of finished goods, assemblies, and parts to address customer requirements. We will support the Hamer brand, its products and related trademarks.”
