I have found a wurlitzer e.p. model 100, supposedly, for sale in my home town for $200.00 US or best offer, 'with a few broken reeds."
I say supposedly because model E.P. 110 is supposed to be the first model manufactured in 1955, followed by the 111 and 112 within the first year. I couldn't find anything on the model 100 on the ol' interweb except the following excerpt from the wikipedia entry for "Wurlitzer electric piano":
The instrument entered production in 1955 as the EP-110, followed by the 111 and 112 of the same year, and continued to be produced in various forms until about 1982 when production of the EP-200A ceased.
There is evidence of a piano designated as the model 100, but whether or not it was produced or only a prototype is up for debate. Pictures of a model 100 do exist, and the Wurlitzer EP Service manuals do state that the Wurlitzer was introduced in 1954, not 1955."
Basically, I'm ready to jump all over this but I need to know how to confirm this when I go take a look and whether or not reeds from the 112 will work on this model.
Is this mythical beast for real and how to identify it? Thanks for any response.
