Over here in Europe i'd say it would be a good deal. they sell for about the same as the little phatty costs new over here. that said, the little phatty CAN be bought new at all...

but in the US, rhodes go for a lot less $. also if it's missing the sustain pedal, i'd say drop the deal and watch out for a cheap rhodes if you want one (i've seen one here on VSE for sale a few days ago for 500$ with everything included, that would be a GREAT bargain over here...).

With the new CV factory mod for the LP, I would say keep it.

Seriously, now you can completely interact with the Moogerfoogers, modular synths, CP-251 AND.... the Voyager.
As you know, I have a Voyager and the LP, and I can't wait to get this mod and combine both of them.

If you have the Phatty, Voyager, Fooger Ringmod, and the CP-251/VX.... you can have one h**l of a Moog analog system.

I guess it depends on the condition of the Rhodes. I sold a Little Phatty earlier this year for $750 postpaid. I'd have a hard time finding a good Rhodes in the States for that kinda money. You can find cheap ones all day long but they usually have been rode hard and are in bad need for maintenance. I dunno. If the deal is for you to get the $150 and the Rhodes and you really don't want the LP then go for it.
