Shand Exclesior
« on: January 23, 2017, 09:42:35 PM »
I am considering parting with my Shand Excelsior as a general clearout of too many accordions of all types!

This box was reputed to have belonged to Jimmy Blue but I have no proof of this.

As mentioned elsewhere on this forum it was produced as a close alternative to the Shand Morino.

It is an early model, in very good condition.

Tuned by John Douglas of Dumfries, good quality new straps.

I was thinking £1400. Prefer collection  - there is no case for this box.

Photo below is the one from the gallery - I can take others if there is interest.

There is mention of Jimmy Blue buying a black Excelsior in 1962 in this Box & Fiddle Archive article.

I should have said that this accordion is in Glasgow and that contact via private message would be best.

Thanks

This accordion is on Gumtree just now with some better photographs:

It really plays very well and I am still open to offers.

Been away and didn't see this post until today.

The accordion is still here...
