What is a Wurlitzer 270 worth?
« on: April 30, 2008, 01:34:55 AM »
I've inherited a Wurlitzer 270 baby grand electric piano and I have no idea what it is worth. I've seen them go on Ebay for US$500  and also for 1200 British pounds!
I'm guessing there is a middle ground to value - and does location make a difference (I'm in Australia).
Thanks!

The problem with this rare and beautiful instrument is the weight.
A 200 only weighs 56 lbs, and this weighs about 200.(not 141 like seller on ebay claims)

They usually sell for between $500-$700 even though they are very rare,because of the weight.
