I'm normally not a fan of "price check" posts, but I really need some help on this one. So, I've got a shot at an oberheim four voice locally. Or at least I did before the weekend, so we'll see what happens.
As far as condition, it needs a bit of tlc. Some keyboard bushings, a key levelling, it'll probably need tuned. I might want it recapped just because. The seller says there's definitely no battery leakage, but the battery needs replaced. So, I'm expecting having to reinvest some further cash in it.
The question is: how much should I pay? Or better said: how much would one of you guys legitimately pay if I wanted to sell this thing tomorrow? It seems like the numbers from shops are high (to be expected), but there's no ebay information (also to be expected) I can figure the selling price of the four sems, but is it basically just worth the sum of its parts, or +/- 20% more?
Besides the price point, i think i'm going to absolutely love the way it sounds and want to keep it a while. Therefore, I don't want to penalize my pursuit for other gear by paying too much for one piece
Advice always appreciated.
