    My son found one on an online classified this summer and we grabbed it for $100. It smelt awful, needs work, but this video has provided all of the motivation required. This is awesome ...


    if you've ever done any work on them, would love to hear what I'm up against.

    Thx.

    Sorry, this is interesting as far as it goes, but I can pretty much get all those tones on my 20-25 year old Casio CT-700. I used to gig with it when I was having to play guitar AND keys in a band. But with this one instrument, I could cover Booker T, Doors, Santana, and just about anyone else. The old Farfisa's and Vox Continentals were notoriously unreliable. The only work-around I had to do on the Casio was if I started a song on guitar and then switched to keyboard, I couldn't preset the keyboard before we started....it had some kind of auto shut-off if not played for 2 or 3 minutes. Other than that, it was great.

    They were the top of the heap back in '66! Any band that had keys had one of those or a Vox. I know next to nothing about the insides.
