When there were a couple up on eBay in about 2003 or so, they went for something in the $300-$400 range. Most people didn't want them due to the fact that they are divide-down. (they probably would have wanted them less, knowing the actual structure of the polyphony!)
Yes, if that is the going rate for a Synkey:
A. Something is wrong with the world.
B. I don't think I'll be buying one.
Y'see, that's how much I paid for my MINIMOOG.
I could see maybe $700 in a crazed frenzy of bidding, but my LORD... the things you could get which are more powerful (if less rare) for $1800!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know... no one wants to hear anyone bitch about prices.
