I just did not dare to ask, since I'm not gassing for any of those (and also quite incapable of buying any right now, exept maybe the MS-20).

I can say that the other guy selling a lot of high end gear (SH-7, Polymoog, Elka Synthex, etc.) locally was also difficult to deal with. When I called and asked what price are such item, it took at least 5 minutes of turning around the corner before getting a straight answer. And it was more than I could pay (although I was expecting it a bit). Just put your prices up front so nobody's time is wasted!

Edit: The other guy's list:
roland sh 7
roland re 501
roland o2r
roland gr 500
roland cr 78
maxikorg parfait
elka synthex parfait
moog taurus parfait
moog polymoog keyboard
moog polymoog syntesizer
doepfer A-100 suite case x2 allgoodies paid 6500$
emulator x2 1 is for part working and other working
rode classic 1
hammond c3 reverb + 122 1958 authentic
crumar ochestrator
eml polybox orange
[...]

Edit (2nd time): This other seller is now putting some of this stuff on eBay:
-Roland JX3P+PG200, D50+PG1000, Juno 6+106, MKS50/70, JP8080, U220, MVS1, MDC1, MSE1, RS09, TR-707
-Korg Poly61M, M1R, MicroKorg, Micro, Kaossilator/Pro, Monotron X3
-Yamaha DX7, TX816, TX81Z
-Crumar Performer, DSI Mopho, SCI Prophet 2002

I don't know if this has already been mentioned (probably has), but a guy called 'awakewalk' in Japan has always quite a few interesting (rare) synths for sale, usually refurbished, or in their original boxes etc.

For instance, two Jupiter-8's, a Yamaha DX1 ($10k :) ), an Oberheim Xpander, multiple vintage Korgs in their original boxes or cases etc.

Interesting (not necessarily rare) but ridiculously expensive.

Modified Maxi Korg for $525: no keys and 2x CV/Gate added, for an unique table top version (not really a rack)! Too bad I have nothing for CV/Gate control in my set up...

Nice, but based on the text he wrote, he's probably expecting an additional grand or two for it...

Then he edited the ad, because the original listing was $525. The other things he listed (JX3P & PG200, Oberheim DMX) was a little underpriced too, and it sold pretty fast it seems... Too many calls made him change his mind! :roll:

They'll never get a grand for it, but an ELI-7030 rebrand I don't believe I've e'er seen before.
Actually looks BETTER than the ELI version.

My favorite synth BUT I certainly wouldn't have bid on that one...

They're selling it for someone else and have no clue and since they don't have the cable to connect the keyboard I asked them how they could have tested it and got no response... Also asked them if it was a Rev 4 (you don't want an earlier one) and again no response...

Doesn't the VPK keyboard just take an XLR cable to connect it? They have a video in the listing, showing them playing the Voyetra with the controller.
There's also pics of the inside. Looks like a Rev. 3. The Digimod board is green.
Looks like they accepted an offer though...
