The Hamer Standard XT has a

The Hamer Standard XT has a ivoroid bound body but the neck is unbound.

"Import Series" and dot-necked models have "Hamer" marked pickups made by Dimarzio.  These are similar in tone to the Dimarzio PAF.  Other models with trapezoid inlays and maple tops have Duncan Designed pickups.

Early models/"Import Series" era don't have "XT SERIES" on the headstock or trussrod cover.  They have a "Made in China" decal behind the headstock.

Early models/"Import Series" era have the old Gibson style wire on the tun-a-matic bridge to hold the saddle adjustment screws in place when adjusted.

The early Hamer cases say HAMER on the lower left bout of the case, no USA.

Some "Import Series" era XT Standards have a white nut, not black.
