Custom Rhodes: “Lunar Dark Star”

Things are beginning to settle from our move over to the Treehouse Records building on Cicero Avenue. Here’s a look at one of our most recent customizations heading out to the west coast:

Here’s a glimpse of one of the latest custom Rhodes from our workshop. Some of you may recall our custom “Lunar Rhodes” from a few years ago,¬†mimicking the stylings of the Moog Lunar series aesthetics. We’re calling this one the “Lunar Dark Star:”

This 1973 Fender Rhodes Suitcase was finished with Ivory tolex, same as the Lunar Rhodes but inverted with black stained Walnut Cheek Blocks and a custom black sparkletop. In order to get the best lighting possible for the metal flakes in the lid we had to get this beauty into the sunshine out behind the workshop!
