I’d like this to go to someone who will appreciate it and take care of it — the buyer may even consider having Dave Ell refinish the tolex to make it a near-mint instrument in supreme working order. I could deliver it to him for after-purchase work as part of the deal. Let me know if you may be interested.
I currently own 4 Fender Rhodes electric pianos. One eighty-eight model with a speakercab, 2 Mark 1 stage models that I use for gigging and one really nice Mark II suitcase (with rare and LOUD 300W amp speakercab). The Mark II is in excellent mechanical condition and has a few of the expected bumps and wear spots in the tolex. It was recently serviced by David Ell of Kennewick, WA. Dave is one of the top Rhodes technicians in the world today — perhaps the most talented.
