I love how everyone says that 'difficulty repairing SMT circuits' is a reason to avoid modern gear. I solder SMT stuff with a 12 year old, mega cheap iron that has never had the tip replaced. It's not that hard, you just need to take your time and be careful.
In 'the future' it's actually going to be easier to repair SMT stuff because the replacement parts will actually be available. Through-hole stuff is already being phased out, ST Micro just discontinued the very popular TL074 in DIP package.

But yeah, I'd so go for the SH-2 for that price. There's something about all those early SH's that I can't get enough of. There's going to plenty MS-20minis at second hand (read: not vintage) prices soon enough.
