    Very Cool! I wonder what the retail would be on something like that?

      Wow, that is really something. I recently had an idea for something like this but I never knew it existed.

        My guess would be at least $100,000.

          I could see that easily. That's about as much as a Stienway model D, so it's probably in the ballpark...

          It sounds better than I would have expected as well. I bet the technique to play it is so different than organ or piano (but more like organ). Imagine learning to really engage the note softly and slowly so that it really sounds like a cello or viola. I really want to feel what the action is like.

          But just to be greedy, I would still want more (than 61) strings and perhaps some split manuals like a Hammond. . . would really need to practice the ol' thumbs down technique then.
