Hamer Chaparral 8 String USA Custom Boutique

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by agreatheight, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. Are there any 8 string fans out there? I am looking for a new home for my beautiful custom Hamer Chaparral USA 8 String Bass. I have a shoulder problem which causes nasty pain when I play my heavier instruments so I am regretfully letting this bass go. She was made in 1990, but it looks like she was made yesterday - she is in drop-dead mint condition, with only the lightest of pick marks (nearly impossible to see and easily buffed out) and she has no dings, scrapes or other marks.

    She is a fully custom piece, made from two solid bookmatched slabs of flame maple, finished in translucent emerald green - she's absolutely gorgeous. The pic does not do this bass justice, this is one hell of a sexy bass. And plug her in and man, she is a tone monster, with sustain for days. This bass will do that Pearl Jam 'Jeremy' tone easy or dial in some distortion for some King's X / Galactic Cowboys growl. This bass is truly awesome. I wish I could keep her, but my shoulder says no more! and I hate having instruments I cannot play.

    You really can't get anything like this anymore. Hamer has long closed their custom shop and no one is doing this type of boutique 8 string. The craftsmanship is mindblowing. I am selling this bass for $2500 or best offer. I may be interested in partial / full trades (I am always looking for nice instruments and recording gear - US Fender Precision Bass or Stratocaster Guitar, US Gibson Les Paul Studio, PRS Guitar, Avalon Recording Gear, Blue Mics, Sennheiser MD421 MKII U4 Mics, etc) so feel free to ask.
