    Default Townshend Rock Elite black ash plinth & smoked lid.

    After converting my Townshend Rock TT I now have no use for the plinth & lid, therefore I am offering them here.
    The plinth is in black ash & in great condition with hinges intact, the lid is smoked gray & again in terric shape, with no chips or cracks & no major scratches, just some small polishing swirls that will easily polish out but are not really noticeable if you are not bothered. The bottom board has 3 Michell feet added.
    I am offering them together for 125 plus postage, which I think will be around 11. I don't have a printer so I am unable to use most couriers, although I prefer Parcelforce anyhow, but they are a little dearer than others.

    Collection is also welcome, or maybe I could take to Kegworth if that suits.

    Not only are these vanishingly rare, but they are usually spoiled by a yucky yellow lid or tacky gold stripe. This one is the best of the best. If it was on Ebay Auction, I reckon it would go for way more,

    The "tacky gold stripe" is original spec for these and I fel makes it look nicer. I bought mine in 1987 at the price the op is asking now. A great price for what is indeed a rare item.

    I did have you in mind Jamie until you sold it that is, maybe the new owner will want it.
