Lost But Not Forgotten: The 1949 Rhodes Pre*Piano Service Manual has been scanned and is now available for your reading pleasure. It is quite an artifact, giving some interesting perspectives on the early development concepts behind the Fender Rhodes Electric Piano.

The Legend Unearthed: The Leeds Rentals "E" Rhodes was discovered recently after producer Jay Graydon enlisted our aid in tracking it down. It lives on today, preserved like a piece in a museum.
