    The only Juliets to have hammer stems were the polished Juliets ...

    Polished Carbon had hammers as well.

    It depends on what you mean by "first generation Juliets". If you mean the first few released, none of the first 7 or 8 had hammer stems. As mentioned it was when the polished frame was introduced that hammers came into play, though the Romeo and XX already had it. If you mean "first generation" of the frame color, there's only one gen of polished.

    I have no idea how you are using the term "generation", but the polished Juliet frame was offered for sale from 2001 to pretty much near discontinuation of the model.

    He means the Ichiros, which were the only Juliet polished carbon release. Most but not all Ichiros had hammerstems.

    And to the OP, outside of Ichiros only polished Juliets have hammerstems, and all polished Juliets have hammerstems regardless of generation.

    Anything else is a custom job, which do exist.
