  1. The seller doesn't own it, which is why he is known for cancelling sales. If you were to buy it, he would simply bid on it at that amount, and if he lost he would cancel your sale. It's in violation of ebay policy but they don't do anything about it.
  2. Cool, yea, guess that confirms my suspicion. Was just surprised that they called it "a very rare graphic"... like so rare it was an aftermarket one-off
  3. Saw this cool graphic Chaparral on the verb. I think it suits the shape really well, but this is so unlike the graphics one typically sees on Hamers and much more what is typical for a Jackson, makes me think it's just some refinish. Can someone more knowledgable confirm? https://reverb.com/item/62166631-hamer-usa-chaparral-custom-shattered-glass-1988
  4. Man, I'm not a bass player but I'm still tempted! This is such a beautiful instrument: Just cross-posting the reverb listing. No affiliation. https://reverb.com/item/60696285-1991-hamer-usa-chaparral-4-string-bass-guitar-beautiful-honey-quilt-top-back-w-ohsc-8-5-pounds
  5. Ah, that's a beautiful guitar. About the locks, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it -- I think the logic as you state it is the more generally correct one. It's just been a long time since I've been really practicing anything with a lot of trem use, yet almost all of my guitars have floyds. Still I've been surprised by how well a properly setup floyd with a lubed nut and locking tuners can stay in tune with moderate trem use.
  6. Well I might be less of a trem user than the average Hamer fan, but I've never had any issues with it. But I've got quite a few guitars around at the moment and when I reach for one it might have been a while since I last played it, so I'm more concerned with those kinds of tuning changes these days. Basically all my floyd guitars have the string locks either off or loose these days. Yea, but to clarify, they are definitely included 🙂 That's a nice one! Headstock looks good to me 🙂
  7. Yea, I mean, you said this when the other guy posted it too. Personal belief, but I don't think any serious buyer is going to be put off by not having the nut clamps shown in the photo. Or that like there's not a trem bar attached to the bridge, etc. Both are included, but both are also trivially cheap.
  8. Hi guys, I think someone may have posted this but I never did -- killer flame on this one! https://reverb.com/item/54622796-hamer-californian-elite-usa-1990-aztec-gold I'm in Japan, and I've been watching the yen fall a bit lately vs. other currencies, which is making life pretty tough. But on the other hand, it also makes it so I can come down pretty low on this and offer it for $2700 while the rates are what they are, and with that i'll include shipping worldwide, which is definitely a few hundred in most cases. There are some caveats, I think I may not be able to ship to Canada or Germany, but I can ship to the US or France, so I can at least get it close by. The Reverb listing has I think all the info you need, but just overall a probably above average condition Californian in one of the most desired specs. Hit me up by email if you're interested. Technically also interested in a Korina Standard, but with the yen so low, hard to add cash to anything. I've got a bunch of cool amps though.
  9. I thought that guy was a member here? Wish he would post them up -- they're amazing, but + dealer fees + reverb fees, nothing I could purchase and not feel bad about later. And isn't his collection insane? Does that mean we have another many dozen cool Hamers in queue?
  10. They're included 😉 I just don't leave them on when I'm not practicing something very trem heavy.
  11. Yup, basically just for other Hamers. I'm in Tokyo, they don't pop up too often here. But that's some factor to consider when trading, though I have no trouble shipping internationally (and likely will for this guitar anyway), and I have an address in the US I could have a traded guitar shipped to, and I just pick it up next time I'm in the US.
