Early 1970's Fender Rhodes mark 1 73 key (1974-ish) Trades Encouraged:

New hammer tips, New damper felt, New key pedestal felt with "miracle mod" bumps
A few new damper arms, leveled, dip set, escapement and strikeline set
New tine block bushings and hardware, guide posts lubed
Basic voicing setup (you tweak to your taste)
Sounds in tune to my ears or very close, I'm old, your level of perfection may vary.

Complete with legs, leg bag, sustain pedal, and the parts that came with it before the refurb for spares.
No dead, sticking, or damaged keys. No dead pickups, volume and tone control cleaned and working.
Top and cheek blocks have some light scratches but no cracks. One front leg has some wobble ($80 from Vintage Vibe) Its stable for home use, but you want to replace that if you are planning to gig with it.
Tolex is in good shape, logos, external hardware, and plates show some damage and road wear. Some edge lift, but no peeling.
We left the patina where it made sense, its better to let it tell its story than be covered in shiny replacement parts that don't affect its playability.
Overall very good, original condition for a 50 year old stage piano.

Asking $3000 No shipping. Partial trades are cool.

Serious buyers only please, if you have reservations, ask questions or research first.
I'm happy to provide more photos. I'm not a piano tech or Rhodes expert but will gladly give you whatever info I can.
Not going to ship unless your person comes to my door, picks it up, and I'm already paid. From there its your piano, your responsibility.
