Background: I purchased this accordion from Joe Petosa at his store in the University District of Seattle, in 1978, trading back the "ladies" acoustical accordion I bought there about three years earlier. My
small hands were trained to reach a full (piano) octave, so over-reaching had been a constant problem. Not so for this new, full sized one! He described it then as a special Heirloom model, one of only five made. In Italy.
Expertise: None. I am not a musician. Never was, but made it through ten years of classical piano training (at my mother's insistance). Accordion was my dream. I located a teacher of accordion and took lessons. I did enjoy learning, and found relief from daily life / job stress via this awesome "squeeze-box" so much fun to play! I have not touched it for maybe 15 years. If it were an automobile, it would be a 'low mileage' one for sure! It's always been stored inside the house room temperature never mishandled never "loaned out".
IF indeed the electronics have failed, then I would again liken this to an automobile, where a preserved item of historic significance might well be worth some restoring, reinvesting, and/or reinventing. I believe Petosa Accordions could do a fantastic job of it! It is a beautiful accordion!
Price: Asking $3200 USD for everything (see photos) offers seriously considered. Must pickup in Sedro-Woolley, Washington State, USA. I find myself too soon old and weak to lift it sadly, it's time for me to let it go. Payment accepted easily and securely via PayPal ... Email Me
(I'd take $1500 for all if it would go to a very good home.)
(Yes, it is acoustic as well as electronic. No, I do not know if the electronic part still works nor exactly how to connect the cables to the tone chamber. Everything is too heavy for me to lift now days.)
