Identify this Wurlitzer
« on: January 25, 2021, 02:51:17 PM »
Can someone help me?

I love the sound of this Wurlitzer but I am having trouble identifying it. It looks to have the top half of a 120 but also has a wooden suitcase cabinet, never seen anything like it before.

Thanks for any information you can give me. (Great band if you haven’t heard them already)

It's a 720 or 726(?)--   https://www.tropicalfishvintage.com/blog/2020/5/29/from-the-archives-wurlitzer-726

Hey Alan Lenhoff, that's Joey Dosik, from Ann Arbor's own Vulfpeck and My Dear Disco!!

It's a 720 or 720A due to only having two knobs on the left cheek block (from what I can tell). The 720B had two knobs, an audio jack and a pilot light.  The 726 had a knob and some toggle switches, and a pilot light too.

I agree with cinnamon. It looks exactly like the 720 I had, and the 726 seems to be really rare.Ive never seen a 726 in person...
