    OP never mentions buying it in this thread so maybe you should get your cart off the street ya negative nellie. Whether they work a deal or not, guy shows up looking for a specific guitar made over 30 years ago and within a week it appears it's been located. That's a win all day in my book.

    If you guys have trouble working out a deal, I will donate $100 towards the cause to make this happen. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This is the greatest forum I’ve ever been a part of. I’ve been around a few and I always come back to the HFC. These are the stories that make me glad/proud to be a part of this.

    That guitar is worth (easily) three times that at "good guy" pricing. A fair deal all around for something that rare and unique would be somewhere in the low to mid-$2,000s. That would sell for a considerable number north on the open market.

    Thus speaks a wart... No, you're right BUT enough has occurred on here that underscores the special nature of this place that I stand by my initial assertion.

    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandpa did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

    Sounds like buyers remorse! There’s so many people doing that with online stores these day’s. The whole thing hinges on the “As Described” you said it had cometic issues, a few bumps etc. I’m interested to see what Reverb does!!

    LOVE IT! Great call on keeping the slightly worn PU covers - quite stealthy you are.

    Here we have a special model of a mid-90s Hamer. This is part of a special, Japan only run called, I believe, the Special FM-LE. It is essentially a Special FM with body binding (the normal Special FM is unbound). This particular guitar has a nice thick quilt maple cap over a 1-piece mahogany body. The neck is also mahogany with an unbound rosewood fingerboard. The frets are in great shape with only the tiniest of wear. The neck is a nice vintage medium C shape and the guitar plays nice up and down the neck. This guitar originally came to me with a set of Duncan pickups, a 59 in the neck and a Custom in the bridge. However, the neck pickup had an issue and needed a rewind repair. While waiting, I dropped in a pair of JM Rolph pickups that I had. These pickups are a nice match to this guitar and I saw no reason to put the original pickups back in. The original pickups (including the repaired neck pickup) will be included. The guitar is in very good condition. There is a small ding through the finish on the corner near the bottom tone knob and a small indent close by (see pics). The original hard shell case is included $1,700 shipped/paypal'd - NOW $1,200 I posted a couple of pics below, there are more on the reverb listing https://reverb.com/item/26020571-1994-amber-hamer-special-fm-le-w-jm-rolph-pickups

    Cynic...I hope this is my brothers guitar and you are right....crazy if this is it! Great forum! I have been trying to locate his paperwork to find the serial number. I'm sure he registered it though as it was made for him. I don't know where to find that possible company registration since Hamer doesn't seem to have a record that far back. I am waiting on Hamer-on to fill in some info as to whether or not he is the second owner.

    Radial Tonebone Headbone Tube Amplifier Head Switcher Basically brand new in the box, I used it a handful of times in my studio when I had multiple tube heads and wanted to use the same cabinet. $200 shipped in the CONUS. The Headbone VT is a specially designed switching device that lets you toggle between two tube amplifier heads using a single speaker cabinet. This provides the ability to experiment with different tonal options and perform without hauling two speaker cabinets to the gig. Toggle between two amp heads using a single speaker cabinet Can be controlled remotely with separate footswitch Class-A audio circuit retains the tone of the amplifier Opto-couplers for noise-free switching

    So does anyone know (before I simply pull the guard and check)if the 2nd gen Cruisebass is routed for a p bass pickup under the pickguard? If it is, I’ll have to try it as this is my only bass and if I can get j and p sounds that would be awesome. No biggie if not cause it plays and sounds incredible as is.

    I like his videos, more gain than I use for sure, but seems like a pretty straight shooter who knows his stuff.

    Yes, they must be 4 conductor output leads; will split nicely and I'd use two 500k push/pull pots, specifically the brass-shaft Allparts and Mojotone offerings to do this. Non-evasive, will retro-fit...perfect choice for a classy guitar! I know Duncan has a diagram on their website and it's easy to do with the most basic of soldering skills. Any reputable guitar shop can do the work if you're not comfortable. I think you'd get an appreciable "bang for your buck" either way .. I say go for it!

    Just so everyone knows, and I can't believe I'm trying to clarify this, but I did respond 3 times via email and didn't hear back as they must have not gone through. I sent a private message and hope that does reach Hamer-on.

    Over the years I have been contacted by several people who want to buy a guitar from my collection, but rarely do they want to pay fair market value. They will tell me why they had to sell, and how I'm supposed to sell it back to them for 1/2 of what I paid for it, because that is what they sold for in their desperation a decade previous. Someone has reached out to me to buy a Barney Rubble SSI many times, he is convinced he would be over paying at $1,500. 🤣 He had one back in the day, so I guess I owe him? When I had the five Virtuosos people would routinely offer me a grand each for them, to take them off my hands. Just ignore the nonsense.

    Very cool guitar but a shame it didn't work out for you,........................your doing what you feel you have to do and it is your guitar so............... I had 2 1979 Hamer Sunbursts and sold them both..................with regrets, but it was the right thing to do. GLWTS

    Michael Harris put some kind-old footage on youtube, and I don't know much about Scarabs but it looks like a Scarab. Not the best performance of Collision Course, but I used to love cranking this song back in the 1990's!

    Maybe juststrings.com stockpiled 'em, though they do have some gaps in their DM inventory: Blue Steel NickelSteel

    I used to use the blue steels some 25 years ago. Not sure why I ever switched. I remember liking them quite a bit.

    That would explain the high prices. They were a limited run. Not sure how many though. Totally agree on the term "mint".

    It sounds like you need to unload that Cali I'm the other way around, more or less started on a '76 CBS Strat and played that for years until I discovered the Super Strats- Kramers, Charvels, Jacksons, Ibanez, etc. A few pointys and other shapes aside, I then found Hamer. Right now it's pretty much a even split between the Hamer Cali's and my HEL Spitfire- (another dinky super Strat).

    Well, as pretty as that EBMM Classic Sabre was that I posted several months back, I find I just really don't like an active bass. So, it went on the chopping block with a trade option. I was lucky enough to have someone offer this 2018 Mapleglow 4003s as a straight trade. Came in today and damn if it doesn't fit like a glove right out of the box. I have heard some people have trouble with the ergo's on these basses, but not me. I've got a set of TI flats on the way and it will be just right at that point . Can't wait for practice next week.

    Amp11 Big Box, OD11, I have not tried the Purple Plexi but the JHS Andy Timmons is pretty killer. OR: https://khanaudio.com/pak-amp?olsPage=products

    Lovepedal OD11 or Amp11 will replace the Timmy at a much cheaper price. i would check the LP Purple Plexi as a MAIAB...I have one coming, but have heard it is outstanding.

    Lot's of good choices already mentioned. I'd add a Palmer DREI if you can find one. 5-15 watts and clean to mean with choice of 3 different power tubes.
