You are bidding on a refurbished vintage 1974 Fender Rhodes Suitcase Piano in immaculate condition! This piano had a ton of work put into it in 2010 when it had a rebuild.  The Piano has been sitting unused ever since. Its now ready for a new home!The following was done during the piano's rebuild:  Vintage vibe rebuilt the pre-amp and power amplifier. The piano's pre-amp gets that hot vintage vibe tone that you can find on their website. Its a little hotter than the standard stock rhodes pre-amp tone. You can really get the amplifier to overdrive if you need it to. All the speakers were reconed, New speaker baffles with piezo tweeters were installed. I currently have the piezo tweeters disconnected as I preferred the tone with out them but if you choose to hook them up again its as simple as connecting the wires at the speaker terminals.  Mechanically the piano had countless hours getting the action perfect. It was taken apart and rebuilt by Rhodes guru David Ell. this included new hammer tips, Damper felts and any other action parts needed.  The piano is a joy to play! Cosmetically the piano is in very good condition for the age. The tolex does show some slight normal wear such as small nicks and scratches. The case lid does have a burn mark on one side from where it was sitting next to a heater. But it does not effect the piano in any way.   All in all its a pretty clean piano for the age.
