It is now that you showed it to everyone here who is a big fan of Vintage Synthesizers.

Anyway why would it be too good. There's still a day left and most eBay action happens in the last five minutes of an auction. Plus an SH-3A usually goes from about $300-$400...Plenty of time for the price to get up that high.

Oh, I think this should have gone in the exisiting eBay thread.

That reminds me. Once in a while I will be watching some obscure and underrated synth that's worth like $150-180, then it shoots up to $325 at the end of the auction with 21 bids. :shock:

So later on I'm browsing Matrixsynth and what do I see? The same auction! :evil:

I got emailed asking if I would like to purchase this synth before the bid ends apparently. I declined, saying that I'd rather see how the bid pans out. Immediately after, I got outbid by a few dollars, or so it seems. I'm pulling out of this one, I'm too paranoid with ebay.

If any of you are bidding on this, I hope its for real. Don't get pigeon-holed.

Just my luck, I find something I want to bid on and someone goes and posts it on a forum full of 100+ people that'd buy it...

JK, but I was thinking about going after it; if I had money. :P

he has been trying to sell this over craigslist for the last month or so. So there might be issues with it. Ok, maybe there is more than person in W.Hills that has a Roland SH 3-A

Sorry Box. Now would be a good time if your still interested (its only at $160 at the moment). But I was nervous and needed advice.

At this point I have no clue if its a scam or not though. I think I'm just about done with friggin' ebay...

I was just kidding for the most part. I just now spent what money I did have on a Yamaha W7 from a pawn shop. If I did have money I'd buy the Roland, but sadly I don't, and it's one that I've been eyeing for some time.

He just bought it in August. Something's fishy.

Ye, either he doesn't like it (doubtful...) or it is screwed up big time (If I were a betting man this'd be my horse).

Same one huh? I was thinking about taking a look at it a few months ago. We will know when the listing is taken down.

Well, the end price was $450, which sounds about right. But yes, fishy circumstances indeed...

I'm never really sure if I can trust No Reserve bids. Its like the seller is either trying to pass something off, or they're just really confident..

I have sold a bunch of Roland RS-09 on ebay(I seem to find these for 50 all the time) The ones I sold with no reserve have always recieved more bids and sold for higher.

it's funny how you can track things like this. of course, it's appalling if it's being resold because it's faulty and everyone continues to leave that out of the description.

my favorite, however, is the sonic six with the cigarette burn.
