Accordion of the week – Scandalli Scott Wood Four 120 Bass Vintage Accordion

This weeks featured accordion is this classic Scandalli Scott Wood Four vintage accordion dating from the 1930’s and built in Italy by the renowned Scandalli factory. This classic instrument features a sought after curved keyboard design, and a three voice tremolo tuning. The instrument is still in full working order which is extremely rare for a pre war accordion of this age. Finished in a very attractive pearl white jewled casework.

A very happy customer collects his Scandalli Super VI

We are pleased to have been able to assist our long standing customer and friend George Whitfield in purchasing his dream accordion, a top quality customised version of the legendary Scandalli Super VI. Painstakingly hand crafted in the Italian town of Castalfidardo, the Super VI is widely regarded as being one of the finest accordions ever produced. George is a professional musician who regally travels internationally, and will be officially christening his beautiful new accordion in the first of four shows in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik next week.


Gianluca Campi at Guildford Accordion Club

The world class accordionist Gianluca Campi will be performing at the Guildford Accordion Club on the 25th of September.

I do hope you can come along to hear this very special accordionist.. I have seen him and he is amazing!
Please note this is not the third Friday but the fourth.

Good to know that the Accordion Shop is for diatonics too!
