Yeah, glad you brought him up...I was gonna post about that.  So...  WHO
IS THIS GUY, ANYWAY??  I mean, if you read further on down the HC
Classifieds, you find that in addition to the aforementioned $18,000
Roland modular system from hell, he's also selling on the same day:

a $3000 Oberheim Matrix-12...
a $2900 Steiner-Parker modular...
a $2500 Yamaha DX1 which he claims belonged to Herbie Hancock...
a $1700 Yamaha CP80 electric piano...
a $1200 ARP-Rhodes Chroma...
and a $2000 SCI Prophet-10 (with anvil case)...

Uhhmm...yeah.  Okay.  Got some fries with that?

Gee, while most of us are sort of used to the idea that 99% of the time
we're doomed to a life of sifting through ads for dented old beat up
MKS-7's and CZ101's, that must only apply to people from Earth.  This
guy sure isn't from Earth.  He comes from that planet out in the Groove
Galaxy where Steiner-Parker Synthacons and Elka Synthexes can be picked
up at K-mart for a couple of bucks in the same aisle where they have
those cassette albums of The Very Best of Uriah Heep.  I mean, excuse me
if I'm raving, but...doesn't he ever sell anything that isn't rare as
hell?  I mean, like, an ESQ-1...even once in awhile?  And he does this
all the time on there!  I'd probably cry if I even had to let go *one*
of the things on his little for sale lists...

Anyone have any background info on him?  He for real??  If he is, heck,
I don't think I'll have to worry about locating ultra-rare gear ever
again.  I'll just ask him to pick me up the original E-mu Audity
prototype and a Korg PS3300 at K-mart and I'll be set, yes sir... :)
