Database Manager on February 05, 2013:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is presently (2012-02-02) listed for sale on the Leek Pipe Organ Co. website. The organ has a very asymmetrical and Holtkamp-esque appearance with the Pedal at the extreme left, the Great at center/left, the Swell enclosure at center/right, and the Positiv to the far right. Even the Positiv chest layout copies a long-time standard of Holtkamp.
