Own Death Metal History: Chuck Schuldiner’s B.C. Rich Stealth Guitar Up for Sale
Here's your chance to own a piece of death metal history.
Chris Schuldiner, nephew of Death's Chuck Schuldiner, is selling off a rare personal possession of the late legend: his B.C. Rich Stealth guitar. This axe was not his primary one, but one that served as a backup. Visually, the guitar (seen below) is in rough shape as Chuck had stripped the paint from the body, but as he states below, Chris decided it was best to leave it in this condition.
Up for grabs is One of Chuck Schuldiner’s personal Stealths. This was mostly utilized as a backup when his primary black stealth was out of commission, hence why there are few pictures of him playing it. At some point in his life Chuck decided to strip the paint. I considered restoring it but decided to leave it just way the chuck left it. He was the last one to string this guitar and it hasn’t been touched since. It also comes with the hard case that Chuck toured with. Chuck Schuldiner was my uncle and that is how I have possession of this, I provide personalized COA upon request. Good luck and happy bidding.
Fans wishing to bid on this auction can do so here and, at the time of this post, the current bid is a very metal $6,666.66.
Schuldiner passed away on December 13, 2001 at the age of 34 after battling brain tumors for two years. This Sunday (May 13) would have been his 51st birthday.
