    Because some people have just no idea of what the organs are worth, or are trying to trade on that Hammond name. If you look at ebay and gumtree ads over here, you'll find the same silly asking prices. Selling prices (completed and sold listings) are more revealing.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      What does a late 50's model B3 with a couple of Leslies go for in UK and Australia?
