Classic Keyboard Instruments

As you may have guessed, I'm a musician as well as an AFOL, and I love vintage keyboards. Here are some classic Minifig-scale keyboards from the 1960s and 1970s - Clockwise from left, a Fender Rhodes Suitcase Piano (with a tips glass on top), a Yamaha CP-70 Electric Grand Piano, a red Wurlitzer EP-200, a drummer (what's he doing there?) and a Hammond B3 with its matching Leslie rotary speaker. OK, I don't know how the organist can reach the pedals, but I included them anyway!

I have made a few more. Here are some prog-rock staples:

From left to right: RMI Electra-Piano, Minimoog, Mellotron M-400 and Polymoog.

And finally, the classic Yamaha GX-1 "Dream Machine" synthesiser as used by Stevie Wonder, ABBA and ELP.
