Commentary to come later, but for the moment here’s the list. As usual, it’s grown a little.
Not earth-shaking (certainly not in the same league as finding a Korg X5D in the trash) but kinda cool nonetheless. Picked this up last weekend, at one of the first yard sales of the season. My hunting partner of the day spied this as soon as we walked up the driveway.
Perfect condition, works fine, box is in good shape, but it’s missing one of the styrofoam endpieces (edit – both of them are there, they were just crammed into one end of the box). No manual or adapter, either, but for the whopping $2 it cost I’m not complaining (current average sale price is $46).
I have another one that I’d picked up last year, but it’s not in as good shape. The older one will be sold, and this one is getting added to the permanent collection.
And this weekend, at a thrift store…
Completely complete right down to the warranty card. Box is a wee bit beat up, but c’mon – it’s 32 years old! Everything else is minty fresh; the manual doesn’t appear to have been opened. This one’s also going into the permanent collection.
So, a good start to the season. It’s nice to know that even as I’m selling some of the pieces I don’t use or necessarily want, that there are still lovely things out there for really good prices, provided you know which rocks to look under. Which is made much easier if you normally shop with someone (as I do) who happens to be a great rock-turner.
