This is a 1978 Rhodes Stage (passive) 88-key electric piano.

It has been completely refurbished. The Hammers, Dampers, Felts, and Screws were all replaced. Tines were each removed, polished, replaced, and tuned. The rubber bumpers and screws were replaced, the springs were polished. The pickups were individually cleaned and adjusted. The key bushings were all worked on, around 25% of them were replaced. The "grounding plane mod" has been done for quieter operation. The keys have been leveled and straightened. Some of the electronics were replaced, like the wire and jack. The wood, cover, pots, and everything else was cleaned. The damper pedal is brand new.

What did not get refurbished were the cosmetics: tolex and key caps. This is a "reliced" piano that looks (and is) vintage. Some of the tolex is peeling up on the bottom. It does not have the top case cover or the original legs, but a (sturdier) aftermarket stand is included.

Also included are a box of spare parts: additional felt, hammers, bushing tools, damper straps, and more. A tuning tool is also included.

As you can see in this demo, every key works except the top three notes (they play but don't make much of a tone.) This is recorded from the line output.

I'm not buying a Rhodes again anytime soon, but I wanted to say this is a beautiful and well restored instrument that will be very well enjoyed by your buyer.
