    It's especially funny when they use misleading language to try and pump up the item for sale -- e.g. touting the "true analog fatness" in their digital synth, etc.




    There's a Triton that makes its way onto our CL every couple months, same deal, a 61 key model that he's asking like 2 grand for.

    • We have that one too, Dan, but it's a Korg Karma. And it's a "must sell!" at more than 3x what it's worth.



      Have a Karma for 1900

      • Ok I have to give an honorable mention to this guy. He's not asking for an outrageous price for his guitar - which is worth about 1600 new I guess - but he's also including the lowest lowball offer he will go for.

        • Here's a dandy. A Korg EA-1 synth that's worth around $100, going for $345 -- which is what you would pay for a mint used EMX-1 or ESX-1.



          "...an amazing edition (sic) to any music studio or DJ set-up."

                  Looking For Donated Music Gear. (South Austin.)

                  Date: 2009-12-09, 2:48PM CST

                  I just rolled into Austin and had to sell all my music gear to get to austin. i am a professional guitarist and i need the following gear. Donated if possible.



                  PRS Guitar (no CE models or Mira's, Custom 22 w/birdies preferred.)

                  Stratocaster (No Fenders Please, Need an Anderson or Custom Shop)

                  Boutique Guitar Amp (Bogner, Bad Cat or Aguilar, No Marshalls, Crate or Fender)

                  Pedal Board - No Boss Pedal. I need T-Rex or Fulltone

                  Microphone - Sennheisser preferred, No Shures.



                  I need to get started playing ASAP to pay for my Apartment and G45 Infinity Lease. I might be able to return the gear in 6 months or so, but would prefer donated gear. Thank you in advance for the help. I hear the Austin is a wonderful town with cool people.



                  Have A Safe and Happy Holiday Season.

                        • This guy's been trying to sell this black banjo for a while. I think he originally wanted about a grand. It's not even that old and certainly not rare, just a modded open-back banjo.

                            Oh yeah? Actually, these sound more serious to me than the $10,000 lyrics dude you found earlier.

                              • I can't figure out what this guy is selling for $990 - I don't think it's an actual Triton synth, but it looks like it's samples or something for a Triton...? But for $990!? I've seen this person's post for this same thing for awhile now. Anyone know what it is that is being sold?
