SK-20 for $200 USD?

ok so I saw an advertisement for an SK-20 for 200 with a road case. I'm currently asking about it's working order (maybe that'll scare him off, it is indeed a dud), but I am curious at what point the SK-20. What is it worth when it's in excellent working order? When it's in okay working order? When ...

You cannot find the parts for these synths anymore unless you find a scrapper to salvage. he says that the floppy disc drive is the only thing, not working.

Good or Bad Deal? Emulator I

he says that some components are broken, but I figure that if I buy it, I could just replace the disc drive with an old IBM drive.

would it be worth it?

learning to play the piano/organ/whatever does help if you want to end up doing double keyboard playing. but it's basically the same principles.

if you learn to play the piano, it'll make it so much easier to learn any other instruments that you desire to learn in the future.

it's a Zube Tube.
it's basically a cardboard tube with plastic cups on each end and a long metal spring inside. and when you speak into it, it causes the coil to vibrate.
