Appreciate the comment, that might well be a C-melody, and that's probably what threw me off when looking at the photographs. If it were in the neighborhood, I might think about it but based on the location, I would probably burn 3 hours of driving and 1/2 tank of gas. And C-melody's don't move, I see enough really nice ones starting around $250.- but... prices start to go up for those as well.That is possibly a C melody, judging from the relative size of the hand holding it. Or the seller may have small hands. My friend has a C melody very similar to this one except his is absolutely mint, and has the original case, also mint condition. It was appraised at $700 three years ago by the auctioneer he bought it from (for considerably less) if that helps you assign a value.
