SOLD! PSA 90 Chaparral Elite FM body boomers not affiliated


Recommended Posts

Hello:

There is a nice 1990 Chaparral Elite FM body on eBay for $2513 free shipping from Japan no affiliation. 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/224609547140

I think it looks awesome. A few through the finish knicks.

After hearing from Bennyboy-UK I'm looking into buying it.

I didn't buy it. 

Hope who ever did enjoys it!

Just noticing the pickup array -- is it possible to run an EMG (bridge) coupled with two passive pickups?

It’s a bit of a bodge, but not too tricky to sort out put a set of pickups which will happily work together after you get it. :)

What extra is involved buying from Japan?  Forms and/or fees?

If you’re in US ask him to use EMS postal service, which he’ll probably do anyway. Made in USA on the form and you good to go.

Thanks, just to be clear, not trying to steal @Ham Rex's purchase, just curious in general for the future.  Those Japanese stores have lots of cool stuff!

I emailed them twice so far... no answer.

I asked for a price with shipping.

Please feel free to reach out to them and purchase it.

I've purchased 2 USA Hamers from Japan.

It is important to have the description on export paperwork say it is a Hamer Guitar manufactured in the USA returning to USA with SN.

There are no import fees on that.

I had to fight with DHL about this.

According to cbp.gov no duties or import fees are required for items manufactured in the USA returning to the USA from Japan.

I hope this helps.

Waiting for another 25 lots with same guitar. Vivat Japan!

I know... I see guitar auctions for the same guitar in Japan buy 10 different sellers all the time.

IIRC is a new step in the flipping game: they make a listing with the pics from the original ad and if someone buys it, they automatically buy it from the original seller and resend it when it arrives.

DHL, UPS FedEx and other private companies charge broker's fees - those are not tax duties, it's what they charge for the papers they supposedly fill for the package to enter the country. Usually $65-80 ( last time I paid broker's fees to Fedex about $70) 

 If it goes regular post office, preferably EMS - no charge
