Just received this information from a thoughtful player with Chapman knowledge:
"Hello Chuck,

Wanted to send a little information re. the Chapman Stick you have listed. It looks great and is priced right, but you have it dated from the 1980s.

Yours is actually closer to the early to mid 90s. When Emmett started making the Grand Sticks, he started the numbering from 101 again. I used to own Grand #492. It was made in '92. This one, especially with the 7+5 tuning, would put it no later than 94. Emmett didn't offer that tuning for very long.

The later date actually works to your advantage. There are many upgrades from the 80s Sticks that make this one far more playable, adjustable, and overall a better instrument."

We've gotten some really cool, unique stuff in lately, including a Jerry Jones Sitar, a Steve Klein sTele and this 12 string Chapman Stick.  Stuff you don't see every day and, if you do, never in one place!

If you haven't seen a Chapman Stick in action, YouTube is full of inspiring videos that'll blow your mind.  The instrument is a trip, and there's definitely a learning curve, but if you can dig in and get it going you'll have a whole new frontier of musical exploration to embark upon, amazing everyone you'll encounter along the way.

The instrument is in excellent condition.  It is hard to nail down the year of manufacture on these, but with a serial number below 1000 I have found that it is likely from the 80s.

Includes the original Anvil style case, a nice upgrade.

From Website: Our 12-string extended range stereo fretboard tapping instrument gives you more of what you like about the 10-string Stick. The fretboard is slightly wider and the strings are very slightly closer together making it comfortable for most Stick players. Each instrument features adjustable components for easy setup.
