For sale - price dropped:  RODGERS ORGAN MODEL 578

Two manuals and pedal board, seven years old and in perfect condition.  The finish is a light oak and the instrument has been used in my home since I bought it new.  Google this model and discover its many features (far too many to list here).  The organ is located in Bradenton, Florida.  This would be a perfect addition to any music room in a home, but also to a sanctuary in a church.  A brand new Rodgers that is very similar to this 578, the newer 579, has a list price of over $40k.


I am asking $9,999 but I'm open to reasonable offers.  Please feel free to phone me at 815-531-9558 and come over with some music and try it out.  You won't be disappointed.
