I love the description : "High quality MIDI cables don't need to cost an arm and a leg."

An arm & a leg would be cheaper.

$2,499 OBO for a Korg Polysix. He threatens to keep it if he gets nothing but "low offers." :roll: Because, you know, this is a perfectly reasonable asking price for a Polysix. :lol:

$3250 for an ARP Quadra with a bunch of broken sliders that puts out no sound. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/ARP-QUADRA-/1214 ... 1c48de7e17
The seller, music-outlet-shop, has a rep for trying to sell guitars, often heavily modded or in need of repair work, for ridiculous prices, usually with a single photo taken at an angle that makes it hard to see details.
Keys: Realistic Concertmate 500, Korg K25, Korg Micro X

Guits: '86 Fender Japan '50s Reissue Strat, '80 Aria Pro II TS-300 Thor Sound

absolutely disgusting!

for comparison, a sane person sold theirs on eBay UK earlier this week for 'only' £575. Which is still a bit more than I would pay (I was considering making an offer) but a lot better than these absurd opportunists flooding the US market recently.

I put mine up on eBay a month ago with a buy it now of $1100. It was the cheapest on listed at the time. It sold in less than 24 hours. I sent it to a re shipper in the us that repackaged it and shipped it to Japan. I don't know what those services cost, but I'm guessing the buyer paid on the order of $1500 total.

I just didn't like it as much as my TG77.
