This will rot on eBay for years, but that said, really nice to see the innards pics, and an audio demo would've been cool ... just sayin' ...

SPECTRAL AUDIO NEPTUNE FULLY ANALOG SYNTHESIZER


$400 seems cheap to me, for what this potentially has to offer. IMHO, the V1 looks better, but whatever...

http://burlington.craigslist.org/msg/4693230803.html

Dude posting a JP-8 in great condition for $1900. It's on the Burlington, VT craigslist, but not on the Plattsburgh, NY CL, where he says he is.

I've gone back and forth with him for almost 24 hours. Too many red flags for me, but might be legit.

Red flags:

Posted locally, but not in actual town.

He called me, but the number was "no caller id" on my phone.

He suggested it would be easier to ship than to pick up (4.5 hour drive for me).

No pics on the posting.

Several different user names for various media.

Had to wheedle an actual address out of him.

Had to wheedle his name out of him, which he was very reticent to give.

Couldn't verify any of his info through third parties.

Phone number is listed as a land line in Georgia.



Reasons it might actually be legit:

He doesn't sound like a typical JP-8 user. (This is ambiguous, really...but a typical JP-8 user would probably ask for a lot more).

He actually called me and talked on the phone, instead of contacting me back through email to ask me for a money order, shipping, blah blah blah.

When I requested pics, he sent them. I couldn't find them anywhere on the interwebs (google images or ebay auctions).

Didn't fit typical CL scam, and I nothing came up in scam searches under his name or usernames.


SO...

If this is for real, I hope someone in the northeast (or elsewhere I suppose) nabs this.

I would appreciate some healthy synth love from any forum member who tracks this down; acceptable forms of payment for the tip include Monotrons, electribes or pancakes. :biggrin:

$1900 is always the price the scammers seem to use... You'd think they'd change it by now it's a dead giveaway...

The guy texted me back today to ask me if I had changed my mind. I told him I was 90% sure it's a scam, so why would I change my mind? He acted all offended. We'll see if he takes down the posting...

At this point, might as well ask for a picture of the synth with today's newspaper, like in a hostage situation... ;)

This guy just gets dumber. He knows I'm in MA, and he posted essentially the same posting on the Boston CL, this time at $1300.

He's since taken it down, though. I can't find it. I posted a response ad that says it's a scam.

Well it seems the eBay imbedding isn't working, but there is a fully refurbished Rhodes Chroma with CC+, aftertouch, and the Enabler! $8200 obo sounds like a great deal for the set. Unfortunately, it's local pick up only in Landenberg, Pennsylvania.

Looks like a fun bit of rock history, and fully functional too! In Providence...
