My musical instrument collection has gotten somewhat out of hand so I’m reluctantly having a thin out.

Chuck Lee Chalk Mountain Custom, serial #283 (made some time in the early 2000's?). It's one of Chuck's earlier builds and has a Tony Pass 12" 'Lost Timbre' rim (submerged birch) and a Tubaphone tone ring. It is a solid, heavy instrument with a powerful sound to match.

Full spec outlined below, give me a shout if you require any additional info, photos or a video.

Overall condition is very good. There are a few dings and some age related wear to the finish as seen in the photos. I’d be more than happy for potential buyers to see it in the flesh and have a play.

Collection would be preferred, but as it comes with a hard case I can post if needed. I could deliver within Cornwall/ Devon for some fuel pennies.
