Need to put a year on my Fender Rhodes
« on: September 10, 2004, 05:52:04 AM »
I picked up a Fender Rhodes suitcase 73 off the curb - someone had set it out to be picked up as trash!  Missing the suitcase cover, but the piano appears to be manageable and I got the speaker cabinet as well.  I'm trying to find out the year it was made.  It has volume/bass-treble/vibrato knobs a four-pin connector and plastic hammers.  I can't tell by any of the numbers or markings inside the unit.  Any ideas for how to date this thing?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Give me the address of the guy who put it out as trash and I'll go smack him upside the head...
If you want to know where to find the booze, ask the engineer...
