I think James was working on this at one time, and I know the Rhodes Chroma site tries to list each keyboard and has many accounted for. It's fascinating.

Anyway, if enough people are interested, we can get this going. I can edit as need be. Here are some I've come across (bold are Forum Members names):

Cheers,

This is a dumb question I'm sure, but I'm going to ask it anyway... I've just purchased a Mark V, but I don't see the serial number on it anywhere. Where should I be looking?

bjammerz: It might already be in the list if it's the one that ended on Jun 17, 2007.

gbuell: Welcome! Not a dumb question. After removing the case cover (which has the latches on it), take off the harp cover (which covers the main piano guts) by pulling up at the back and lifting the entire up and out. The serial number is located on the right side of the wood you'll see after removing this cover. The date code is stamped 4 digits, and the serial number is typed smaller, starting with a "K."

jim: Thanks in advance!

There's a Mark V on Ebay now, and it's been added to the list.

Hi Guys,

I am the winner of this auction (K805881, Made 2/9/84).  I'm located in Brooklyn, NY.  Very excited about it.  I need to find the best way to get it from Kansas City to here in Brooklyn.  I've seen the rhodes shipping thread here, and am considering Keyboard Carriage as an option.  If anyone has a better idea, your help would be much appreciated!  Thanks in advance!

bjammerz is correct, you'll have to find a local music shop in both areas that will be willing to harbor the Rhodes until Keyboard Carriage can pick it.  Most music shops are willing to do this. They might charge you to do this though.  

Keyboard Carriage is definitely the way to go!

Adrian,

If you'd like, you can contact my piano tech, who is in the area and may be able to make arrangements for you (I don't know for sure, but you can sure call him and ask).

Hello all! I hope you are having a great New Year.

Thank you all for helping to compile the list of Mark Vs that are here so far. I am hoping we can continue having the list grow.

As far as updating from my end, it seems now that no Ebay seller is posting pictures of the serials of the their Mark V. This has been the case with the last few Mark V auctions. In fact, there are two Mark Vs for auction right now with no closeups of the Turbojet or serial numbers.

Oh well. It may be more difficult to keep track of these than I thought. I still hope people will be inspired to contribute the serials and where the keyboards end up, like they do on the Rhodes Chroma site.

Until then, keep looking out for Mark Vs!

It's worth a shot to ask the eBay sellers to either post a pic of the serial, or to ask them what the number is.

Rhodes Mark V - Serial
« Reply #29 on: January 21, 2008, 06:00:43 AM »
My Mark V has the serial # K805773 (3384). Another number is stamped on the frame: 017249-TBJ (Quality control maybe?). I have purchased it from the Ebay seller Olivia's Vintage, 4 years ago and it's sitting in my project studio in Normandy-France. It's complete with original stand, pedal and case and I would give its condition (both cosmetic and technical) a 8/10 evaluation.
