Update 12

Well, we are down to our last Wurlitzer 200 for $1,500. This is the last of a batch we got a few months ago, that we completely rebuilt and restored. They were sitting in a shed for years and years but we were able to bring them all back to life. They are great sounding Wurlitzers, so if you want the last one you better act fast.

We have been recording some new Rhodes Repair instructional tech tip videos which you can view on our youtube,
