Anyone got one of these they're not using?

The only B system bandoneon I know are made by Harry Geun. The less expensive models (accordion reeds) are no longer being made.

I have not seen one of these for sale in a long time. They used to show up on ebay.

Do you mean something else?

I was hoping to find a cheaper Geun's model but I'm opening to anything really.

The model shown in that linked picture is already a "cheap" student model (with only a small bellows). A good C or B griff bandoneon costs as much as a good "normal" (non-chromatic) bandoneon. Good ones do not come cheap.

That's the model I was hoping to find. My post was a little unclear
