Hamer / Californian Custom- Custom Order - Rare! / 1988 / Red / Guitar For Sale
This particular guitar was ordered as a custom order to Paul Hamer himself. I wanted a rosewood fingerboard because the sound is better balanced compared to the ebony one. I tried both fingerboards and I observe that due to the bright tone of the body the rosewood combination suits this guitar much better.
Apparently it was the ideal combination.
The guitar is very light and very resonant.
The original Floyd Rose was fitted by Hamer.
You may see it in the early Chaparral and Steve Stevens models.
