"No wierdo's saying call me, I don't wanna have a conversation"

Roger that, dickhead. =D>

Being that he doesn't want to have conversation, just how does one expect to sell anything? This sounds like one of those "gentlemen" that calls everyone "boy" and refers to everyone not wearing Dickies and a Work shirt a "homo". (if I had a dollar for every time...)

That's painful to see.

that's just them trying to look legit. i include similar requests in mine. i hate when, for example, i receive nothing more than, "gimme a call ###-#### glen," or, "is this still available i want it ASAP." those are either spam or someone being a pathetic idiot.

serious, i hate ebay & only use them as a last resort anymore, but all the spam through craigs to sellers is absurd. all i ask is that people say something more than that so i can tell they're legit & don't just want my email or cell number for further BS.

Totally makes sense now that you put it that way.

Seems more like an organ than a synth, but it's really cheap considering the full gear!
The setup looks like a Yamaha GX1 or EX1, but with less features... Anyone can identify this?
Considering parting away from:
-Roland TR707
-DSI Mopho

It looks like an EX-1.
If I had 2K to burn and space for it, I'd buy.
It pretty much is a synthesizer but with less control than a CS80/GX1.

The seller replied to me, and it's a EX-42. A little more like an organ (or a proto-synth), previous to GX-1 or EX-1 by a couple of years (1970). But after looking at that video, I'm really pissed off that I don't have the space for it:

If it was semi local to me, id find a way to store it. Not likely to find one in that good of shape with the giant speakers for that kind of price ever, ever again.

There's no way I would take those speakers anyways! It's like adding 2 fridges to your studio! :o
