:shocked: would anybody actually pay this..

.. i suppose if you've got the red 101 and your missing the mod grip, but come on, is it really worth it? I'd sell you my grey grip and a bottle of my mother's name polish for a fraction of that. :lol:

Would you pay this for a MKS-7 with a messed up face? Maybe I'll go for it if they knock it down $100. :lol:

I am just speechless.
Seriously... I don't want to hear any more talk about collectors driving prices up. Idiots are driving prices up. It's the idiots. The idiots are the problem.

CS01s are cute and fun. What they are not is anything which remotely merits that value.

I think the Micromoog guy made an absolutely fantastic auction page... but seriously. I can only look at that and think that he is trying to instill the notion of value in the uninformed reader... and that irks me, as it is pure manipulation. I am the die-hard banner-waving fan of the Micromoog... but this is just criminal.

thing even has a broken cutoff slider. & the two bidders racking that up have only 12 & 19 for feedback scores. bet they seriously don't know what they're going for.

& that's coming from someone who'd keep his CS-01 mkI over a micromoog anyday. :thumbright:

for some reason that's not showing the right conversion... AU $9150 is actually $8,510.30, at least today. was $8,443.62 when the auction ended. but yeah, still.

It's not even a buy it now, they're just standard, and it's for one. The pair is double. Wow.

YC-45d's have been going for between $1000 and $1200 on eBay lately. And that's for examples that are in MINT condition. This guy is asking $1500 BUY IT NOW for one that, as he says in his description, was gigged on weekends for "a few years", has all sorts of problems, scratches on the wood, tolex coming off, the bag is ripped...

WTF? Rent a clue, asshole.
