My Mark II cover for your Mark I cover?
« on: November 16, 2015, 07:50:57 PM »
Hi All -

As I shared in another thread, my search for a Rhodes concluded with the purchase of a lovely 73-74 transition suitcase model.

My first order of business, was to take my piano to Ken Rich for check-up.  Ken's reputation in the wide-world-of-Rhodes' is well deserved!  Thank you Ken, for working your magic to make a good thing much, much better! 

Next, I'd like to replace the plastic Mark II top my piano came with, with a proper Mark I top.  My Mark II top appears to be in near perfect condition.  Would anyone like to make a trade? 

Also, I am still on the hunt for an outer top - the plywood cover lid that clamps over everything.  I need the early kind, that goes down at an angel, and then jogs flat for the last couple inches near the keys.  Any one have an extra they'd like to sell?

Thanks in advance!!

Charlie

Let me know if you need a Mark II cover that will also fit a Mark I.

Very cool, where'd you end up finding one? My MkI has a MkII top... it just came that way when I bought it. I love the look of the MkI much better, though I definitely need the flat top for placing other boards.

There also is always VV's rather elegant solution, if one still needs that functionality.
