    B3 Restoration

    I live in the Cayman Islands and recently bought a 1961 Hammond B3 Organ
    I need to restore the entire Cabinet including Pedals and Bench.

    I could afford to fly in someone from the U.S.A. to have this done.
    How easy is it to take everything out of the Cabinet to have a proper Job done?

    are the wires easy snaps or would have to un-soldered and re-soldered?

    There is quite a bit of unsoldering, Michael. It's time consuming, but not exceptionally complicated. Sorry you haven't received a comprehensive reply before now; I just found this post. Frankly, importing labor seems impractical to me. Surely, you could fine two craftsmen there... one to disassemble/re-assemble and one to refinish.
