"Vintage" seems to be the hip word for selling junk that doesn't work for $1000+

Damn hipsters are buying them too, I bet.

What I really want to know is if these things are now the "in/hipster" thing, does that make the synth guy more attractive to girls than the lead guitarist now? :D

No. It's always better using something acoustic that you can carry along, like a guitar, a flute or bongo. That's the best chick magnet. Otherwise, you still have to lure them in your studio!
