USA Hamer 2TEK Cruise Bass Candy Blue w/OHSC

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by ampegsvtca, Jul 14, 2004.


  1. This bass is an almost mint NOS 1996 USA Hamer 2TEK Cruise Bass with new hardshell case. Has a brand new set of Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups in it for zero hum but will also include the original Seymour Duncan Vintage Jazz pickups if this bass sells. Might consider a trade for a vintage Precision as I am more of a Precision guy and that is why I am selling this bass. $639.00 shipped.

    This bass had been mine and I can 100% vouch for the high quality of the bass as well as for Ampegsvtca being a totally reputable and stand-up guy.

    You can't go wrong here!
     
  4. Its not the same bass, I am keeping the one I bought off of you and I put a set of Dimarzios Ultra Jazz in that bass as well. The bass I am advertising here is a 1996 that I bought off of Ebay (yours was a 1995) one difference that I can see is that they made the later 2TEK bridges smaller, how much weight savings this makes I don't know. Also the Candy Blue is a bit lighter on the newer model which I don't think is a bad thing. I think that it came from a music store in the eastern US (Virginia maybe?) where it just hung there and never sold. I don't know why because its a great bass as well.

    any pics?
    thanx!
     
  6. I can email pictures but could not download them onto this sight as the files were too large (even a single picture). It is a really great bass, better than any USA Fender Jazz built in the last 20+ years IMHO. This is probably the closest you will ever get to buying one new as well. Payment by Paypal is prefered: scolwell@shaw.ca

    Could you please e-mail pics to olpbm@hotmail.com , I may be interested.

    Thanks.
     
  8. I would have to assume that "the Hat" means Medicine Hat, Alberta which puts us in the same province. I could probably meet you part of the way (I go down to Lethbridge quite a bit since my wife's "kin" all live down there) or ship it via Loomis or Tiger Courier. Anyway pics have been sent and thanks for your interest.
     
  9. Price reduced $600 US shipped. These are really underated basses IMHO.

    You are killing me!

    :D

    Bump for the nicest bass (and best deal) here!
     
  11. How about $450 shipped for my other Cruise Bass that "The Larch" used to own (I think you know the one I am talking about). Heres your second chance!

    1983 G&L SB-2, any interest?
     
  14. I am interested mainly in Precisions but would consider a G&L L2000.
     
  15. Price reduced to $539 shipped, since I just went ahead and ordered a Lakalnd Skyline Bob Glaub.
     
  16. Price reduced again.
     
  17. $500 US shipped, 450$ without the case.
