great value, guys.

if I bought this just to get the return address, and paid him a visit myself just to smack his s**t it might be worth it.

Well, in all fairness.... He has the right to ask whatever he wants for it (I dunno, maybe they ARE that rare?) and we all have the right to hoot, laugh, chuckle, etc. and not buy it.

it's not really, that's pretty high... check ebay, only two have recently gone for over a grand. average is still more like $700.

" not in great cosmetic condition"... no s**t? I'd hope for $3500 it would be cleaned up, at least. :roll:

I scored mine for $750, which I admit is high, but I swear it looks like the shrink wrap just came off. Truly mint. Came with a nice hardcase too.

Is there a recent artist who produced some genius works with the machine that would cause the sudden inflation?
If you do a search on ebay you'll see one in Japan for $399 starting bid as well. But that might just be due to the value of the dollar difference between countries?
