Manfrini Piano Accordion
Starting price: $450.00 Seller: guitarlady3702
Manfrini piano accordion. Converted to Musette. An excellent instrument and I am only selling because I don’t have the time to play any more. The accordion is in beautiful condition and bellows are extremely good without leaks. The box was converted (by the gentleman who looks after my accordions) to Musette since I did a lot of Scottish and Irish music at one time. This is a lovely accordion and would suit a lady player since it is a light box and not difficult to hold. That being said, it would make a great main accordion. Straps are in extremely good condition. The accordion stands me at almost £900 (cost of the original box plus service plus conversion to musette) The accordion comes with a case which doesn’t seem to be the original since it has seen better days BUT it does the job!! I bought this as a back up, however my main accordions have never caused me any problems so this never was used – taken out of its case to give it an airing every now and again to keep everything working smoothly. Will parcel up in bubble wrap for transportation but would prefer collection. A great Xmas present for a young player who wants to “move up”. The only thing I need to mention is that I had an old fashioned Hohner pick up fitted and the jack plug socket was fitted down at the bottom of the bass handboard (beside the wrist strap). I took the pick up off the accordion since it was needed on my other one so the small hole for the jack is still there – it is hard to see and could be patched up if you wanted. If anyone wants to come to my home to try this out before bidding, I live in Durham City.
