"This electric piano was made by the Wurlitzer Company, in Dekalb, Illinois, around 1972-1973. It is model 200A serial #129394L, and has 2 control knobs: volume and vibrato, plastic lid, vinyl-covered wood case, and 4 detachable chrome-plated tapered legs. The 'L' serial number designation indicates that this piano was manufactured in Wurlitzer's Logan, Utah plant. This model, 200A, continued in production into 1980. Jazz musician and composer, Duke Ellington, used this piano during many of his travels and would use it to compose and play music, sometimes in the middle of the night.
