This Hamer Vector USA Custom, Serial #755778 was built in 2007 and purchased by Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. The guitar was owned and stage-used by Bennington during his performances with Linkin Park from 2008 to 2011 in Australia, Japan, and Europe for Projekt Revolution and A Thousand Suns tours. The guitar was used mostly for the band's performance of "Shadow of The Day". The guitar was retired from the stage after the last leg of the "A Thousand Suns World Tour - 2011, and given to Sean Paden, the band's guitar tech. Since, the guitar has been held privately.

The guitar is in "Very Good" condition and has not been modified from its original build specifications other than the pickguard and pickup rings, which were changed from white to black by Linkin Park guitar technician, Sean Paden, at the request of Bennington. The guitar shows multiple areas of stage wear, but overall appears to be in great shape, with no breaks, cracks or significant damage. The instrument is fully functional and plays very well, and sounds great. The frets are in great shape, and the electronics function perfectly. The guitar includes the original hard-shell case with tour tape labels intact.

The guitar will include certified letters / written affidavits from former Linkin Park guitar technicians Sean Paden and Kurt Schneck, who both maintained this instrument for Bennington for many years on multiple tours with Linkin Park as well as a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
