Baldwin Solid Body Harpsichord 1967 Black w/Red Soundboard

One of 500 manufactured in the late 60's, this rare piece was originally wired stereo but modified to mono by its original owner. In 1980 the mono preamp was enhanced with an FET transformer to eliminate the radio reception.  It uses a 9 volt battery to boost the output, but can be operated without the battery given a healthy gain availability on input.  Any competent electronic tech can revert it to stereo pretty inexpensively. The original soundboard was replaced by the first owner. but the soundboard it has now has travelled from Ohio to Boston and back without any problems, (always transport on its side).  Several strings have been recently replaced and all are working. The legs have been repaired for renewed stability and reinforced with large washers to prevent future such instability.
We just accepted on consignment a twin twelve amp that is actually pictured with the harpsichord inside the front of the manual. It is being serviced and will be available for sale soon.


Gibson LT

This 1948 vintage archtop acoustic Gibson LT guitar is not only a beautiful collector's piece, but it also has a beautiful sound that only aced wood can provide.  This guitar is in great repair, and looks good for it's age. There are simply a few scratches in it's varnish, but that only adds character.
