It still plays when plugged in, it just doesn't work as it should. You will have to get it re-wired for things to work properly. Sadly I have become very ill over the past 8 years and never got around to doing that with a lot of the guitars I have so I need to let them go just to stay above water. Let me describe the rest of this guitar to the best of my ability.As they say "It has good Bones". First as it says in the title it is made in Korea. This is one of the earlier ones as it says Slammer Series under the Hamer logo and not the other way around. It has a thin shim under the nut and someone has installed Schaller tuners. Someone has drilled a hole in the top of the lower horn for a strap button (I guess they were going to play it left handed). Strap buttons were replaced with strap locks. I do not have the the clips that go on the strap for them.
There is a ding at the top of the head stock which has has chipped the clear coat. No belt buckle gouges on the back or deep scratches on the front. There are a few pressure dings around the edge of the back of the body and a pin head sized one on the top below the bridge.
There is also a finish flaw where the neck meets the set neck pocket (You get that with a lot of the earlier USA Hamers as well). Also switch tip is missing. Neck tension rod works well and frets are in great clean condition.
