Oh jesus...the SH-101...people ask WAY TOO MUCH FOR THOSE...I had a Moog LP Stage Edition and ended up hating it...I offered it for trade and somebody had the balls to say "yeah, I'll trade you my SH-101 for it...it's in good condition!"

...never responded to them.

:facepalm: The buyer; did he know these can be bought for less than $300, did the buyer know if he buys the rack mount version he gets a nice cv/midi converter too....

man, really? know it would've felt urgent to hit the BIN, but it was obvious...

since people can't tell what that was now, it was two (separate) roland system 100s for $1700 each. the standard image file scam email bullshit soon as you scrolled down to read the description.

Ha! Mine was for an Oberheim Matrix-12, same price: 1,700. But hey, I've only been doing this for a year now, so I was due to fall at least once. Now I know, and at least I didn't lose any money or give my credit card info.

And there's only 6 of these per TB-303, so that makes it rare.

Not used since 1995, complete with nice dead battery. I don't think the seller has even turned it on to see if it still works.

Dunno how ridiculous this one is. When is the last time you saw one for sale, especially in that condition?
