Hammond M2, old, How much is it worth?

Recommended Posts

I bought an M3 in decent shape last year for $175 (ebay). It sounds great, looks great in my living room.

 

Is it worth going to the trouble to refinish one? I would do it. It's an instrument that will serve you well for decades, why not make it look good. Will it ever be worth a lot? maybe not....who cares, you own a real Hammond.:D

If you do it yourself it will be cheaper. Refinish jobs often cost more than the organ is worth. Unless it is an M-3, spinets do not command high prices. In fact the bottom is falling out of the Hammond organ thing even old consoles. Except B style cabinets which seem tobe worth more. I would say $100-$200 tops for an M-2. Good luck with it!:thu:

I got my last two Hammond spinets for free( a M3 & a beat M2). Honestly your M2 is worth nothing or whatever someone would offer for it. M3's have the Hammond percussion and are popular as a B3/C3/A100 haulable alternative. If you like it, keep it and have fun.

I actually got a Hammond M-3 at home, to which I added a lineout. running it through the rotary effect on my Fantom-S gives it the Hammond/Leslie sound we all know and love

I will buy it from you possibly, refinished or no...when do you think you might be getting rid of it? I really want a hammond spinet but can't go half way across the country to get one, but you're in NY so who knows.
