condition: good
make / manufacturer: Hohner

Piano accordion needs new home. I don't play the piano accordion and it's just taking up space, plus I need money for repairs to my other instruments. Says "Fletcher Bros (Victoria) Ltd" on it... I wonder if there is a connection to the old Fletcher's Music in Nanaimo. So it should be played, ideally by another Island musician who will honor its history and treat it right.
Has a good rich sound. Wrist switch on edge of keyboard. Bright green bellows paper. Good instrument in playable condition, but might need a little TLC or just some regular playing to get it into top shape again, as all accordions do after they've been sitting for years. Bellows still fairly tight - not perfect but not leaking profusely like some old accordions. Might need some cleaning in the bass mechanism, ie. a Q-tip with alcohol or acetone to rub the metal contacts (not the wood contacts).
You might want new straps.
Not the original case.

$250 is the 'buy it now' price, but will negotiate depending on the interest I get. Preference for Island buyers.

Can meet on the highway nearby to let you have a look at it, pls email to arrange.
