Here's the final installment of Premier Guitar's On Location visit with Jol Dantzig of Hamer Guitars. In this segment you'll see why something as simple as buffing a guitar finish is exactly the opposite at Hamer - just as everything else they do is taken to another level, even the buffing process involves the kind of craftsmanship you'd expect from Dantzig's shop. Also, we got to see some of the assembly process before we wrapped up our visit. Be sure and check out the other 3 videos in this series and of course, the our October 2008 cover story on Hamer. Remember - for your gear fix go to www.premierguitar.com
