Back In The day before Ovation owned
Hamer you could get just about anything on your guitar.
Hamer was the closest thing to a real
custom shop that existed.
Understand that A real custom shop puts no limits on
you. Most supposed custom shops, Gibson, ESP, Fender, BC
Rich & even Jackson are not really custom shops at all.
They just offer a bunch of options that lull the
consumer into thinking they are actually getting a
custom guitar built.
Californian (1987to1997) - R.I.P. Downsized contour
body with scalloped offset dbl cutaways, bolt-on
maple neck (25.5 inch scale length) angled peghead,
27 frets on a dot-inlay rosewood fingerboard. Fitted
with one humbucker and one single coil pickup and Floyd
Rose trem.. The Elite version has upgraded
pickups (OBL, EMG or Seymour Duncan), ebony fingerboard,
boomerang inlays, optional high figure maple body. The
Custom version is as the Elite but has a
glued-in neck with a sculpted neck/body joint.
There are also 12-String and double-neck (6 + 12)
