Somebody has been posting the above organ for about a year now in the local craigslist. He keeps posting this ad over and over again and he keeps asking for $2000 for it. Is this worth that much any more?

It's the last and biggest of the Concorde/Aurora series organs, and by far the best. If it's all working it can make a great sound, but it suffers from the usual reliability problems of organs from this series.</P>
As for value, the fact that it hasn't sold shows that the value is too high. Last time I saw one for sale over here in a dealer's store, he couldn't shift it and eventually took it the tip. I wish I'd known before! Last one on ebay over here didn't make more than a few hundred pounds. Maybe $1K is more like it for a fully working instrument.</P>

I don't know where 'here' is but $2000 for an Elegante is high. The last few used ones sold around the Phoenix and Tucson area I think have all gone for under $1000 including one that had a nice 4 channel Leslie attached. Too many folks out there with used Hammonds think they have a high priced organ simply because it has a Hammond nametag on it and was an expensive model when new. But 'tain't so folks! Don S.
