Seems I've discovered an old flame, and I want one so bad I'm in tears. Something about these old school instruments that inspires passion.... the history is intoxicating, and resources on the net are amazing. Tax return $$ will bring one to me soon. Nice thing is, they now cost about 1/10 of what they were mid-80's. Now, the dream will soon be reality. Any other black-and-whiters with thoughts?
