We received a call from Lynyrd Skynyrd management/crew to restore three pieces of rock 'n' roll history. This white B-3 and two matching Leslie 122s belonged to their late keyboardist Billy Powell (1952 - 2009), which he played on their classic recordings and tours (see album cover below). Thanks for decades of music Billy! ... R.I.P.
