    This just popped up my Reverb feed.

    I know that beauty is the eye of the beholder and all that, and sometimes my eye can be a bit wobbly, but this is the most intensely cool thing I've ever seen......

    Believe it’s late 30’s Chickering concert grand, sounds great, if only someone could play it well :)

    One extra useless Internet point for the '50 Stude Champ coupe! My Dad and grandfather helped build that beauty! I highly agree with a keyboard, but slime green? I'll stick with my Wurly 140B in speckled brown.

    so many beautiful instruments. I'm very fond of the old family 1930s Bluthner, just like this one. Elegant, understated and exceptionally musical. An when my wife plays it, special.

  13. Yup . . . have to agree - pretty much anything keyboard . . .
    or a violin fer' sure.
    (or bass, drums, sax . . . this list could go on and on ya' know!)

    A variation of the diddly-bo can be found on every continent except Antarctica. Aside from a drum, it's probably the most common instrument in the world.

    I love it! :D
    An authentic Fender Rhodes is truly an amazing instrument! My full size, 88 key, Yamaha DGX-505 keyboard has a Rhodes sound bank built in, so it can sort of sound like a Rhodes, ...almost.

    I still have my ancient trusty 1960's Wurlitzer 140B for that very reason. My Korg SV1 can do a great Wurly sound as well as a Rhodes, but there's nothing like the real deal.
