    So I ran into a classified for this really really vintage funky sounding electric organ:


    The guy is selling it for 400 euros (roughly 500USD).

    For reference this is an Elka Concorde 902.

    So, what do you guys think? Should I buy this? I really wanted a good keyboard for funk/gospel synth stuff and this sounds EXACTLY like what I had in mind for a fraction of the cost of a decent keyboard. Not to mention this baby is all analog.

    Am I crazy? Stupid? What do you think? Would you buy this?

    So is it keyed like an Accordion? It's certainly... um... colorful!

    The seller is in my town.
    If you know how to play the accordion, it's a good idea.
    If you don't, prepare for hell. It's nothing like a keyboard.

    I'm prepared to learn, I looked some stuff up, it doesn't seem to hard to figure out.

    So in answer to a previous question yes, you play it like an accordion :D

    I believe there were several of those stationed on the bridge in the original Star Trek series.
