there's this beautiful free organ sitting on the side of the road just down the street from my house and i can't find anybody to drive it to my house. and i'm a keyboard player, so, it's really killing me.
just thought i'd share.

I GOT IT!

buttttt
some idiot kid broke off all the keys in the time i was searching for that ride. now i have to buy some replacements if i can find some.

it's really beautiful though. either 1960's or early 70's Hammond organ.

so does anyone have any clue where i'd find replacement keys?
if i can't find any i think i still have all or most the pieces of the keys so i suppose i could tape or glue them on....

Improvise. Glue on actual keys. Like that are used to unlock things.

WOW
this same thing happened to me too, also with a 70's hammond
my friend helped me move it into my house with a neighbor's truck and it stayed there for a year because he decided he wanted to sell it (which i would not let him!) instead of use it. i finally i gave it to a friend in june to bring to school, and he is making good things with it

Man. That makes me sad that some redneck, WT, inbred fuckstain would break the keys off one of those.
Tragedy.
