photos & description are identical to one sold in july for over $7k, but different seller. if you were reselling, would you use the identical photo & descriptions? would you have a starting bid lower than your purchase price?

reusing photos is shady, but there's nothing wrong with using a starting bid lower than one's purchase price. only reason to start with a higher price is if you got a good deal on it, which doesn't often happen w/ auctions, just with BIN prices or purchases elsewhere.

spaceboy I think those korg gr-1's are way too high fi and boring sounding for a spring reverb, I wouldn't be sad about missing it. I swear the furman rv-1 rules for spring reverb

That's a pretty sweet setup. Too bad it's 3000 miles away from me. :?

It's right by me, but I already have too much even though I could probably make money re-selling it.

Oh man... This sounds like a potential gold mine for funky old gear...

Vintage Electronic/Music yard sale

But it's a good 45min drive from me, and I can more easily see myself being disappointed than coming out with some dusty (and actually useful) device... what is a "small" musical instrument anyways? toy keyboard? tr-606? :lol: On the other hand it is saturday, so what better day to waste gas (and GAS).
