    This along with the model RT, E and C organs are the most elusive. Tom Petro told me that after the war many were junked as some bases also closed. Some were located in NCO clubs as well. If any of you have been in the military you know they will throw out anything without thinking twice. Personally I have never seen one myself but it is significant.

    Well unless some member of this forum comes forward, none of the active members seem to own one, or have easy access to one. Shame.

    But really, aside from the novelty of the carrying handles on the side of the cabinet, it's just a model D with handles and no quatrefoils.

    Notice the styrofoam cups sitting in the back of the model G I posted. Yeah. It totally used to have a chorus generator, as the oiling funnels are still in place. Why else would they put cups there? To catch the excess oil of the still-intact oiling tubes.

    Found an RT, lest my eyes deceive me, that sure looks like a vib/chorus switch in upper left corner. https://houston.craigslist.org/msg/6148689718.html

    David I know where a BA is for free in Washington DC. I didn't know anyone looking and I believe there are a couple flights of stairs. I bought an M3 and 145 from the man and a set of dollies. He collects brass instruments and was knowledgeable about what he had. A tech in Annapolis quoted him 11,000 to restore it. It has been sitting since.

    Anyone interested PM me and I will contact the owner and see if I can pass on his contact.

    I have a Model G that was chopped sometime before I obtained it.

    short generator, has the CG still installed...
    it has an early TREK preamp with the swell pedal option & a percussion module.
    it is pretty beat up at the moment, but I am planning on getting her prettied up --
    I even found a set of the elusive folding hairpin legs to use for the project...
    -- more playing time , less restoration/rehab time lol, bwaaahahaaaahahaha

    Currently for sale in Orange County, CA. I don't have any affiliation with the seller. Just read the title of the thread and I remember seeing this earlier this week. https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/...260335315.html

    Just purchased Model G #4233. In my van in my driveway right now. Has the handles and chorus generator (not working... naphtha in its near future). What y'all wanna know?
    I probably own too many keyboards

    Some photos. The console does not currently have the handles on it. Lock was removed at some point.

    The console looks like a Model D inside, I'm guessing? I've never actually seen a D in person. I did notice that this has lettering above the chorus drawbar indicating out is on and in is off. My BCV does not have that on its plate. This is also my first older Hammond to have tremulant! My A and BC are an AV and BCV, respectively, having been upgraded with the official kit back in the day.

    The back. Three thumb screws instead of two, with one at the top. Looks original to me... did others of this era have that third one, or was that a Model G thing? Expecting to move it more?

    Inside the back. Nothing too unusual, but I had not seen that vertical black cylinder before. It's currently balanced on there because I elbow-checked it and made it go "crunch" almost immediately after opening the back. I pulled to see if it was in a socket and it popped off. Looks like it's a ceramic resistor just hooked into the power, and that shielding looks like it got hot - a heater?
