    The Sun Records’ studio piano,a vintage 1949 Wurlitzer spinet with serial number 387912 that was played by a stellar rock and roll list of “who’s who” including Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ike Turner, Phineas Newborn, Jr., Charlie Rich and many more.

Some nice stuff, but things priced too high. There was also lot of suspect stuff so it may have turned people away from bidding
