A Hamer 12-string bass makes a brief cameo appearance on the bonus DVD in the ‘While We Were Out’ chapter. This chapter documents the band in the recording studio, and the studio happened to have a Hamer 12 in its collection of basses. The 12 wasn’t used on the album.


Pearl Jam - Immagine In Cornice

Bassist Jeff Ament’s Hamer “Ament” B12A 12-string bass is shown for only a few seconds while Ament makes one his trademark on-stage leaps. Between each song that was filmed at a live show the film includes many views of Italian towns, people, and extra shots of the band members on and off stage. The 12 appears in one of these segues.
