Nope, not a record. I once got a whiteface Odyssey with factory flight case for $0.00 =D>
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

If it turns out you don't like the Godwin, I'll pay you twice what you paid for it.

Congratulations. That beats my £10.50 Kawai K1, easily.

My best score is a free ARP Pro Soloist, which I (foolishly) sold.

I don't think free should count as you didn't part with cash.

Free SH101 that was used for a teaching assignment when new, used once and put in storage until I got it, mint as the day it was opened. Funny thing was my moms husband was all like' I have this crappy old synth, probably never heard of it'.

He also has a non working Solina and Odyssey in his basement.

I saw that Godwin on ebay. To be fair it was a bit of a heap.

Rhodes 73 Mk II = $0.00
Roland MKB-1000 = $0.00
Roland RS-202 = $0.00

Best deal for which I did part with some cash: EMS VCS 3 Mk2 + Random Voltage Generator + Pitch to Voltage Converter = ... let's just say less than $400 AUD :)

To be honest though, I can't think of much that beats a Synergy for nothing - serious score!

A free Roland RE-201, ages ago. And a free Compact Phasing A thrown in as a little extra bonus.

Oh, and a 30-Euro Korg Polysix *without* battery leakage.

Upon inspection inside the slider tops were there the masking tape residue made it look bad the panel otherwise is ok, no missing parts its now getting looked at if it cant be fixed will still have parts value stripped off.
