    • Hi Martin,
      Lovely to hear from you and your interest in the accordion. I’ve really only just started to think about selling it though I did start to post some information on the FolkFed site in Jan which I have been slowly updating. I’ve recently had a chat to a few people who think I should be asking around $2K for it and listing it on e-bay could even do better. I’m not quite sure that really appeals to me and sounds like a bit of a hassle. Also I’d prefer it to go to someone in the scene here. They sell for between $5700 and $7,000 new depending on where you source them from. If you’re really interested we can discuss price and in any case I’m sure you’d want to play it. Where are you located? The instrument is in pretty good condition and it’s a good solid box with the couplers and options for varying the tone if you’re into that sort of thing. Norm found it handy.
      Anyway let me know. I’ve had one other person contact me about it since I mentioned it on my FB page but he hasn’t come back to me as yet. Happy to chat more.
      Thanks for contacting me and all the best
