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.
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.
Welcome once again to Guildford Accordion Club. Quite a few people are at St Audries Bay, or on holiday, so probably a bit
quiet this evening. All the more time for the Playalong and Party Pieces.

Manic day yesterday with a wonderful end at the Littleborough Rushbearing ceilidh! Huge thanks to the wonderful Jack and Matthew for all their help and to Helen, and Pete at The Accordion Shop (Rochdale branch) for sorting us out an accordion so quickly! Cheers guys!
Looking forward to hanging out at the Rushbearing today, come and say hi!
Thank you so much for the repair yesterday.
It was really helpful to get the reeds reset so quickly and so reasonably!
