I just purchased this corona classic 2 for 800 do you guys think it was a good deal? I know I should've asked before making the purchase but I got kind of excited. Plus it might not even get here, the seller has no feedback, which has me kind of worried. However I'm sure PayPal will refund me in that case. Seller says he bought it to learn but had a hard time since he is a lefty.

I think its a good deal. I have been looking to get a 50's/60's black Corona with the flush grill and have seen them go for about $700 and they have several blemishes. plus that is a very nice color on the box you just purchased.

That's good to hear. I don't think I've ever seen the flat grill.

That thing looks sweet. I see what you mean by the flush grill. It looks a lot cleaner. Wonder why they stopped making them that way.

After playing the corona classic it feels so much better than the Panther. The corona is in sol and the Panther in fa. I play more songs in fa, would it be stupid to switch reedblocks so the corona is in fa? The corona does sound a bit louder than the Panther. Are the reeds much better quality in a corona than the Panther?

IIRC the panther, corona 3500 and compadre all have the same reeds and the Classic has different (better quality) reeds.

Thanks. I decided to keep the original reeds blocks in each accordion. I had one bad reed in the corona (didn't notice it at first, maybe I broke it) and an action issue on one of the buttons. A trip to Italo-American and 30bucks later and it is Perfect again. Maybe not the deal of a lifetime for a corona but I really love the color and enjoy it very much. Thank you all.
