The exterior shows some wear. The front grill has a small hole in it. Some of the chrome hardware has been restored with new hardware. This Rhodes has been lovingly restored from the inside. While the outside is now ready for restoration, the sound is awesome. Some of the lower tines, while some may think need replacing, I've found have a sound that is very desirable amongst many rock players. The vibrato works amazing, and the volume you get out of this late model Rhodes is very impressive. Competes with even the loudest guitar players on stage.Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. I prefer local pickup.
