  1. What is a good mailing address for you? 

  2. What issues did Red Molly have?

      Well, it weighed a freaking TON - significantly heavier than my Norlin Les Paul.  Reverse headstock. But the killer was when Hamer built the neck, they didn't put any relief into the neck.  Basically it needed to be setup with .011 strings and the truss rod almost completely loose to achieve the correct amount of neck relief.  I bought it used and the seller didn't disclose the issue. Since I was the second owner, Hamer wouldn't repair it for me. I ended up selling it to a collector on HFC.  I don't know about it's current whereabouts.

      Sustainer, Floyd Rose, Crowns, Black Binding. Just killer. It's very unfortunate how it turned out. I could have lived with the weight but neck issues forced the sale.

       

  3. Here are photos of the 5 String Chaparral Bass that I have.

    The front is shiny and good looking.  There are no nicks on the neck.  Jay/murkat buffed this one out, and you see a little dust left on it.  That finish is smooth and nice.  Buckle marks are on the back.  The headstock has a couple of nicks. 

    This is the only negative-- That G string machine head button will hit the D string machine head button.  Either that machine head on the end got bent or someone at the Hamer shop drilled the screw hole slightly off enough to change the angle.  This has never been a problem for me because I have never had the tuners end up totally flat in line with each other.  Jay might remember this bass.  You can ask him about it. 

    I am going to Roanoke, VA the second weekend of October.  It would be easy to drop this off along the way. 

    I have no idea how much I want for it yet. 

  4. Depending on when you are in Atlanta I could possibly drop down to say hello.  ZR, polara,and jettster are down there. 

  5. Cow pi.  I get it.
