    Just wondering if anyone owns or has seen this bass. Last known place I think was Atlanta in the mid-late 80's.
    It is Pearl white, has a set neck has dimarizo X2N pickups.
    This bass was custom made for me in the USA. Cost $1000.
    I remember that the strings were GHS Boomers, not many options.

    Oh, in case your wondering that was my 82' Ric.

    No ones ever seen this bass around?
     
  3. If I had, I would have bought it, and would be too paranoid to post that I owned it. Good luck in your search.

    I've got a 4 st. version in white. That's a cool bass! You may contact Kim Keller at Hamer and see if the current owner has been in touch about info/repairs. Do you have the serial number?

    I'll keep my eye out for that. Rare Cruise indeed.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I do not have the serial #. It was a cool bass though. The cruise bass neck was great.

    Check out the www.hamerfanclub.com forum. There is plenty of info. I have seen a video of a band called Alcatrazz (w/Graham Bonnet and Steve Vai). Their bass player also played an 8-string Cruise bass in sea foam green.

    What year was your white Cruise 8 ?

    I actually own the Alcatrazz Seafoam Green Cruise 8 mentioned that was Gary Shea's. He was also the bassist of the band New England.

    Hamer only made a couple of Cruise 8-strings.

    I would say around 85'. I lived in MS at the time. I do remember it had a slight paint flaw in the pearl white paint.
