Death: Chuck Schuldiner’s B.C. Rich Stealth Up for Auction


You thought potentially owning Chuck Schuldiner’s leather jacket was cool? Well, check this shit out: Chuck’s nephew, Chris, is now selling a B.C. Rich Stealth which was owned by the legendary Death/Control Denied mastermind (pictured above, in case that wasn’t clear):

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.


The auction, like this post’s banner image, features the cover art for the Death live album Vivus!, in which Chuck can be seen playing just such a model of guitar… but I’m not clear if this is the same B.C. Rich Stealth from the Vivus! cover, or if that photo is just provided as, like, an example of a time Chuck once played a B.C. Rich Stealth.

ANYWAY, that leather jacket ended up going for eleven grand (!!!), and I’d guess that the guitar will fetch more. So if you’ve got the money and you’re interested, start bidding.

Thanks: Corey M.
