Trying to sell this instrument, yet again!
Seems like an annual event, but there must be someone out there who would like it.
I have reduced the price, but this is the lowest I can go.
Here is as much as I know of the Concertina's history.
I purchased the instrument in 1993 from a gentleman in Reading.
It was then sent back to John Connor for a full check and touch tune.
Sadly, since then it has only had about 25hrs of playing time whilst in my possession. I cannot justify holding onto such a good instrument, it needs to go to someone who will play and enjoy it.
Having read some recent posts, I believe that John is no longer making Concertinas. So here is an opportunity for someone looking for a nearly new instrument. Yes, it is 30yrs old, but it has had very little use and may be as close as you can get to a new one.
Prospective buyers are welcome to come and see and try the instrument for themselves.
