Fender Rhodes Piano Bass

via this auction

"This one is in excellent cosmetic condition and working 100%. It has just come back from being serviced and with some restoration from Custom Vintage Keyboards in North Hollywood, CA. As the title says, this is an original gold-top and not painted like some you see here. These gold models are not too common and are rarely listed for sale.

Cosmetically- The entire unit has had it's tolex replaced, some of the hardware has been replaced (screws, handle, latches, and feet). The wood sides have been refinished, the keys have been cleaned and polished, the cover (not the gold top) was missing on this unit so a new one was built, re-tolexed, and has new felt lining. The keys are original and look good overall. Two keys have small imperfections, but the keyboard was nice enough to keep original without the key's tops being replaced.

Internally- Aside from any repairs, the electronics have been chemically cleaned, everything has been aligned and voiced, the damper height and positioning has been adjusted, the damper felts have refurbished, and it has been completely tuned. This might be updated!"
