This was outside an old church near me. Is it worth picking up?

very heavy and needs people as well as something to haul it in. IF it has tube innards, there are people who turn them into great guitar amps. the wood and additional parts can be parted out.


IF you are a keyboard player and it works, then it could be a lot of fun, as is. find the model number and search online for details.

play music!

I'm 95% sure that's a transistor model and not a tube & tonewheel model. No market value that I'm aware of but could be fun if you have an enormous rec room that you want to play phantom of the opera in.

If u have the back, help and room 4 it. GRAB IT. All musical instruments have some value to someone. Could be a lot of fun, or trouble. But anyone that plays an instrument like the pedal steel, has to be a few bricks short of a load. lol

I would say no, not really.
It's not a tone-wheel Hammond, and those are the ones you want if you want that classic Hammond sound.
B3/C3/A100/RT3, and to a lesser extent, M3.

On second glance, it may be a tone-wheel, but if so, it doesn't seem to have the percussion or chorus/vibrato circuit that runs off a scanner. Doesn't have waterfall keys, so you wouldn't be able to play it like you would a B.

A pic of the backside showing the guts would be nice to see...could tell you more if I saw one.

Still, all in all, I'd take a pass.

Thanks for the advise. I let it sit where it was. Someone who wants and knows about it will get it I hope.

A friend of mine had a hard time giving one away. It's a pity because they really are nice parlor instruments.

Some things like that make nice house ornaments...

When I was growing up, we had a jukebox right by the front door – a Seeburg Select-O-Matic 100, which looked just about like the one on Happy Days. This isn't the very one, but it's this model..



That puppy worked, too. We had a few butter cookie tins full of 45s and we used to play it all the time. My mom claims that she used to play Love Beads (Chet Atkins I think) for us when we were in the womb. Now how's that for music cred? Cool
