Rare "wind organ" from the 50's or 60's. It's fan driven like an Emenee, but this is a real instrument and it's not made of cheap plastic! There are three working rows of chord buttons (Major, Minor and dominant 7th) along with 2 1/2 octaves of working keys to give you a great accordion sound! There are videos galore of people playing these, watch a few to get an idea of what can be done with this instrument. It has a beautiful piano finish on blonde maple and the cover snaps shut with a satisfying click. It comes with a little bench with removable legs that store in the bottom that's really too small to support anyone over six and not wide enough to act as a stand. Maybe you can put a plant on it! I'm guessing this is the original model. Later ones had names like Pianorgan II or III. It is numbered #1727, which would seem to make it a very early model. (These things might mean more to guitar collectors, but they're worth mentioning.) Cash only, no lowball offers and local pickup only.

Here are some minor issues:
The fan is loud and adds enough noise to make it less than ideal for recording. Not an issue live because the reeds a very loud! Some chips and nicks in the finish, along with some checking. Metal strip with key numbers has come unglued.Two crutch tips missing from bench legs. I'm not sure someone hasn't replaced the original legs, but the hard rubber ones on it are very sturdy.

That's about it. I'm asking $200 firm, no lowballs, please. Local pickup only.
