FS: Unrestored 1920 Chickering Ampico in Georgia
By Gordon Stelter

For sale: an unrestored 1920 Chickering Ampico.  The case is in good
shape except for a small wedge out of edge of lid; perfect bridges;
no rust on strings or pins; a _great_ innate tone (full, bright, rich
and clear!); block looks good, board has one straight crack on glue
line; new transmission frame.  The pump and motor are gone, but I've
found a pair.

The 500 rolls with it are mostly Ampico, some Duo-Art and miscellany
(which may sell separately).  Everything is in better than average
condition for a "find" these days, but not "creampuff", either.
Please both call and email if interested in making an offer.
