Gary Moore’s 1984 Hamer Explorer

Gary received this guitar directly from Hamer in late 1984. It featured natural finish on a flame maple top, two full-sized humbuckers, and a stoptail bridge. Gary was photographed with the guitar on a couple of occasions, but to our knowledge never in a live or studio setting.

The guitar is currently owned by John Marks/Rare Star Guitars, and a couple of photos and some of the history of the guitar are available on their website – Gary Moore – Hamer Explorer
