    Talking Value of X77 With (2) X77P Leslies?

    What would you put the value of an X77GT at with 2 X77P Leslies? In good working order with no issues, and good cosmetic condition. I've been kinda curious about them, but they are few and far between, so it's hard to get a bead on their value.

    Thanks,
    Jon

    There's been one on my local Craigslist with one Leslie for $450, it's been there for months. Probably worth about that, 5 or 600. This should probably be moved to the "what's it worth" forum too.

    To an X77 enthusiast they're priceless, to a B3 lover they're worthless. If the price is right, though, keep in mind the value of the Leslies: single and two-speed motor assembly, 15" speaker, 6x9 drum with Mercotac, horn driver and rotor, and a 4-channel solid state amp and power supply...and all this times two. Just saying...
    Over the years: Hammond M3, BC, M102, B3, four X77s and three PR-40s, a Thomas Electra and a Celebrity, three Fender Rhodes, Roland HS-10, HP-2000, HP-600, RD-600, JV-880, a thing made by Korg (?), two Leslie 910s, 122, 257, 258, 247, two 142s, and three custom-built Leslies. Wow, way too much money spent!

    Why would they be worthless to a B3 lover? They have all the B3 tone wheels plus extras for higher harmonics,with additional drawbars,legato percussion availability,and sustain on the pedals.Other than a solid state Leslie,what`s not to like from a B3 lover`s standpoint?

    The B3 purist would bemoan the lack of vibrato and complain about the tone of the X77, probably!
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    Those X77 Leslies have lots of good parts in them! They each have a V21, a 4 ohm 15" woofer, four solid-state amps (I think one has the treble amp transformer), a power supply, a motor stack, a single-speed motor, and some belts.

    Thanks for all the great info guys. I'm sorry I posted in the wrong place; I didn't realize there was a "What's it Worth" section. Now I know. Sounds like the one I saw was a little steep. Guy was asking $1000.

    I don't think that's steep at all. Two huge Leslies and a full size TWG console. Assuming everything is working, $1000 sounds pretty good to me. You have to realize, that in today's organ market there is no standard pricing and most used organs are worth only what the purchaser, if one can be found, is willing to pay for them.

    If you consider that the asking price for B3's with a Leslie is typically 3 or more times what is being asked, $1000 becomes a bargain. The X-77 is in every way a more capable organ than the earlier Hammonds, but the B3 is what the rock stars used, and who doesn't want to be a rock star?
