i think it's very expensive.
There's another one for sale in the UK:

Although it's a beautiful piano, I would never pay this much for it. Imo it's about £800 too expensive.

That suitcase has plastic keys and so is less desirable to most people. I still find these prices absolutely insane!

Damn I could have had a 1975 suitcase 73 for £800 if I'd had the funds at the time!

I just got this one in London a couple of weeks ago. paid a grand but it's mint.

check soundonsound.com readers ads they are always some there

I missed a mk1 that was advertised as excellent condition £500... the guy said it sold the day he listed it.

I was thinking about getting one from vintage vibe the price worked out at £1000 plus £200 shipping. It was a (badged) fender rhodes 74 and looked amazing

yea...VV has some for very nice prices (for us Europeans  :roll: ), but I'd rather get a unserviced/unmodded piano first so I can hear what it sounds like "au naturel", before I do all kinds of stuff to it :)
