They're beautiful. Where do you get them?

You plan on selling any or giving them to a student who doesn't have a Rhodes yet? :-D

I'm looking at my first Rhodes in a week. I've been trying to get a Rhodes since I've joined this forum. I'm moving to Boston in a few months and would love to have a Rhodes up there. :-D

Seeing these pictures reminds me how beautiful those student pianos are and it makes me wonder why the normal stage pianos have not got a similar stand? I love the color too...

 The last picture is one that I found on ebay a couple months back that came out of a methodist church closet in eastern texas.   The four that share the same room for now came from a school surplus auction from a small community college in way upstate new york.   I had came across both at the same time and didnt expect to get all of them (well minus one - the college had a total of five.)  Have only had a couple days to inspect condition of the new four but will update you as to there condition when i get a handle on it.  
As for my plans on selling... still unsure.  They definitely are beasts to ship. It also kind of feels like breaking up a family with the four that came together (LOL).
