Does Anyone Know What Model This Is? - Strativari

Post by katiepantsstl » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:24 pm

Hello Everyone!

I found this accordion cleaning out my grandfather's basement. The brand is Stradivari, but there was nothing on the exterior indicating a model number. Is anyone here able to shed some light on what this could be?

THANKS!

This one is a early to late 1940's Italian import.
You might not find a model # on it, as the name "Strativari" was a badge used on imported accordions made by various Italian factories from the early 40's to the late 60's.
I've worked on many Strativari branded accordions for some 40 years now and found from student, to semi-pro models were of fine quality for their time.
The 3/4 reed box in your Pic's look's great for it's age and if you don't mind a waterfall keyboard, it's worth a refurbish.
