 __Some considerations for a typical B-3 purchase__ 
  
-If you happen to find a B-3, remember that it is at least 36 years old, with a last-model-year (1974) organ, among the hundreds of thousands sold throughout their 30 years of production.

 The average B-3 found in the used-organ market is around 33 years old. [edit: obviously this statistic needs revising, but I don't know what would be true these days] The average B-2, C-2 and other older model Hammond approaches 40-50 years old, regardless of the cabinet condition. 
  
 * Be sure of what you are buying. Often a naive seller will not really be aware of what is he or she is selling. What's advertised as a "B-3 with Leslie" may end up being a BV with a Hammond tone cabinet. Check the data on the manufacturer's plates. Compare the features of the organ you are looking at with those features you know to be present (or absent) in that model.
