Thread: Please donate your Hammond organ

  1. #1

    Please donate your Hammond organ

    Our church is in need of an organ replacement. If you have an organ suitable for use in church, let the Lord touch your heart and we will give that organ a good home. Our old organ is deteriorating rapidly (nearly 40 yrs. old) and the Leslie is fading as well. We are in Chicago and your gift would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Rev. Dave

    I notice no-one replied back then! Sounds a bit scammy to me - "I'm a Reverend, give me a free Hammond." I guess people had more sense, especially as all old Hammonds can indeed be fixed.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    A while ago I was selling a Leslie 145. A "Reverend" called me. Site unseen he made what I thought (I still do, since sold for much more) was an ridiculously low offer. I wasn't about to counter and told him, politely, that I wasn't interested. During this conversation he mentioned at least 3 times he was a "Reverend". After I hung up on him, him calling back to berated me, me hanging up, then ignoring his calls, he sent me a couple real nasty text messages, using words I can't use here, that I would go some place special.

    I've seen requests like this and always wonder why someone legitimate wouldn't go to their congregation, then I realize it can't be legit. It also makes think I should open my own church to see how much I could scam people. But I do have some morals.
