Ha! I can believe that! I bought one a couple of
weeks ago, the price was right $500. I got a '75
Mark 1 Stage Piano PLUS the 4x12 amp & cabinet
from a Suitcase Piano. The action needs some
TLC, I should get some Teflon Powder in the mail
in a few days. I'm going to see how far I can get on
my own with the information from the site before I
have to drag it out to a tech.
