Wurlitzer?

A couple of months ago i picked up an amp. When i came into the house of the man whom' s amp i bought, i saw an orignally Wurlitzer piano.
I like the sound of this one, so smooth and perfect for jazz / blues (Norah Jones used a Wurlitzer as well).
So, I was wondering: what are the differences between the years they build these pianos? I thougt these pianos where build from the mid seventies - begin eighties?
What is a fair price for these pianos? I mean, the most of them appeared to be a $ 1700 worth. At least, in Holland.
An 80's Fender Rhodes will cost around the € 1200,00 mostly.

hope you can help me guys, thanks!

is this the question you were asking

and i'm not sure, all i know is wulitzers are really valuable and somewhat rare, so any i've ever seen being sold were going for a couple grand.

I've had a tough weekend... thanks for the correction.

I like the sound of wurlitzer, but i'm afraid i'm broke
even a rhodes appears to be cheap if you want to have a wurlitzer.

It really depends on the market for pianos in your area. Wurlys have gone around here used for $600-1000. You really just want to find one in good condition for the age. There are replacement parts by Vintage Vibe and stuff, so a big factor in the cost is gonna be how many parts you're gonna have to replace in the first place.

I have a Rhodes, personally.
