Here's  a uber rare 1990 LEFT HANDED Hamer Californian. Lefty Cali's do not come up often, and ones with maple fretboards are almost never seen...lefty or righty. Show me another! :-P (HFC ftw!)

It's in player's condition, with a few dents and finish checking on the body, but nothing devastating, or visually distracting. The neck is in excellent condition, with no dents or gouges. The maple board is holding up well, with no real discoloration or staining, especially given that its 25 years old.

I've since replaced the OBL neck pickup with a Bill Lawrence L-250. The OBL was starting to fade in volume, so I replaced it with the hot output of the L-250. I'll throw in the OBL to the winning bidder as bonus, because I'd like the original parts kept together as this guitar continues it journey.

It also comes with a original Hamer hardshell case in great condition.

I agonized over listing this baby, and I'm not desperate to sell it, but I'm also just letting this beauty sit on a rack, unplayed. So if there is a active player interested, I'm willing to let it go.  Please don't email me with any low ball offers.


Shipping to the USA $75; Canada $55. I'll only ship to a confirmed paypal address. Extra insurance is $1 per each $100 value. I MIGHT ship internationally, but you must contact me before bidding, and realize that shipping with a tracking number will be VERY expensive.
