Boomerang~Junkie posted a topic in For Sale - Wanted to Buy - PIF - eBay & Other PSAsI am moving some equipment out the door to off-set the new Shishkov Ultimate (#44). I am selling my Cognac Hamer Improv (#13). This is the only Cognac Improv made of the entire run. It was made by Hamer for Kal David, who was one of their endorsed musicians at the time. I bought it directly from Kal a few years ago and he has signed the COA for me. Oddly, as a listed Hamer endorsee - his name is nowhere on the guitar or the case? I spoke with Kal on the phone a few times about it (what a nice, humble guy), he said he played it very little the whole time he owned it and that it might even have the original set of strings on it. I have not changed them either and have only played it twice. Kal said he made no changes or mods to it what-so-ever and neither have I. I spoke with Kim Keller about this guitar and he not only remembered it but commented about how beautifully the color turned out. While I love looking at it, this guitar is so nice I get nervous taking it out of the case. This is a wonderfully crafted guitar that really does symbolize the very best of everything Hamer had in their arsenal. I recall Kim telling me that only one of their most talented builders crafted all the Improvs by himself. If I recall correctly - it was our very own Mike Shishkov. This Improv is exactly as I received it and is as close to mint as a used guitar can be. Plays as a USA Hamer should – there are no disappointments. There are no detectable, dents, scratches or blemishes. No issues or smells with this guitar or the original factory case – which is also mint and is an extremely nice (high end) case. There are threads on the forum about Improv #13 with photos. I’ll post some of my own later. This will be also posted for sale on Evilbay tomorrow as well (and possibly Reverb) for a bit more to cover their mob-like fees. $5000.00 via check or certified check or wire transfer. Sorry, I am not interested in trades right now.
