Surly Boy Posted April 18, 2021 Share Posted April 18, 2021 Hi all, The owner of this instrument has kindly offered to sell it to me. He asked me to say what I thought a fair price was so I want to harvest some research. It is not the usual Crabb you see. I haven't seen the pattern on the metal ends before, but I could be wrong. The owner suggested that it may be a different model which was repaired by Crabb or through his shop in some way, hence the stamp. Anglo, C/G Bellows - according to owner, bellows are not best quality, but they play fine to me, I like the action. No drone Made in 1950's according to owner, who bought it from Crabb (the younger?) in the shop in Islington in the 1970's. Attached is an image of it next to a Jeffries and Lachenal. It is slightly chunkier than both, and the heaviest out of the 3. Any and all information and a suggested value appreciated. Tim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
