Measurements Specs for a Stage Rhodes?
« on: July 19, 2017, 01:21:48 PM »
Hello all,

I would like to just ask what the exact specs are for a closed case, no legs Rhodes. (Height, width, length. Etc.)

I am planning to get a Rhodes and might have some trouble fitting into our sedan.

I would do the measurements if I had a physical Rhodes in front of me! Any help would be gladly appreciated.

Thanks!

Why didn't Fender Rhodes stick with the lovely reflective Sparkle Top rail?

If we're being specific, it actually depends on the model.

Wooden-key Stage: 44-3/4" x 14-3/4" x 22-1/2"
Plastic-key Stage: 44-3/4" x 13-1/2" x 22-1/2"

I think a Suitcase top matches the dimensions of the Plastic-key Stage but I've never measured one. I don't know the dimensions of the Suitcase amplifier.

Here are models of some cabinets I've made.

Thank you David. It's a 1976. Would that be wooden key?

That would be a wooden-key.
