This is a rare bird in great condition! Made in the USA, the Chandler Austins were the only mass produced guitars designed by Ted Newman Jones (worked with Keith Richards). 30” scale is currently strung up as a Bass VI (e to E), but can also be set up as a Bari with lighter strings.
The body has a Seafoam Sparkle front, pearl binding, and Black back. The instrument has a great offset shape and is very balanced with a nice rear belly cut/contour. Get your wiggle on with the very nice trem/vibrato. Features two lipstick picks and a 3 way switch. Tone knob is a pull pot that engages an active boost which is a very nice addition and makes this sound nice and big.
It’s been recently set up by a great local luthier and plays very nice. I’m paring down since my wife and I are expecting our first child in a couple of months.
I manage a shipping department so this will be packed very carefully! Comes with a heavily padded gig bag that’s not pretty, but protects well. Price includes ground shipping within the Continental USA and I will cover PayPal fees. Many great transactions here, on The Gear Page, and 100% positive feedback on EBay under the same username.
