Some would argue it was the best electromechanical organ ever made (I would!) As long as you maintain it well (oil the generator and scanner), it will serve you well for many years--it is a surpisingly low-maintenance piece of machinery. I'm still using my teacher's 1956 B3, though, but I'm trying to buy one of those 400-pound behemoths for my home (best $3500 one can spend!)

And I thought I was the last to be interested in Organ playing !
same for me, but my practicing is done on a Yamaha PSR550. Very good quality for the price I paid (about 830 euros ). However, I'm not planning in buying the real thing any soon. You cannot maintain two expensive hobbies (i.e. flying and organ playing), so I stick to my good ole Yamaha, but I can practice on a better one in the chapel I'm going on Sundays.
I do sing as well - in two choirs, but classical only. (although if I lower my car window when I drive, you may hear a lot of different music styles )

I don't really know, I play on an old Vito, which still plays pretty nicely. However, a few of my friends have Yamahas, definitely a quality instrument. Hopefully I'll be able to scrounge up enough money to get one sometime soon. I'll look into the Selmers though.

Do you ever need a guitarist?
I'm not that skilled but if it's something simple I think I can manage it
I prefer an electric (w/ distortion it's hard to understand I'm so unskilled )
Stratocaster, in blue/with livery... oh, sorry, it's not an aircraft
