First the seller tried to off load a Juno 106 with a defective VCF on one voice at $750 (yesterday's ad), now it has morphed into a fully non-working synth for $400 firm!

EDIT: Even more pathetic now, it's missing its 2 prongs power cord and shows a $50 drop...

For that price, I'm afraid it's only the original box... Pretty weird not to show the synth itself if it's so specially designed!

Why bring a synth to a tech, and not fix it completely before trying to sell it? Not interesting for $700...
I'm selling my Roland SH 101 analog synth. It was just serviced at Omnitek, so it is tuned and in pretty good working condition--it only has an issue while using Gate + Trig mode in the envelope, whereby there are out of tune notes heard, but this does not affect the sound while in Gate mode (which is most commonly used, so this is not a major problem). Other than that, the synth is working great and the power supply is included. Selling locally.

Weird... A similar unit (if not the exact same one) was available on the Montreal market for a couple of weeks recently. It didn't sell while the lowest price was near $500 if I remember well.

These are under the radar minor gems, but this one's priced 5x what it's worth

OK, so technically this isn't a synthesizer, I guess, but this one really takes the cake! I sold one of these on CL about a year ago for $160, which is about what they're worth.

This guy's on crack, obviously. A hacked-to-shit SX-240 for $900 + $120 shipping? Sign me up, man! :lol:
