Model M13 New-Old Stock: [Ended]
« on: Wed, 15 January 2020, 18:08:22 »

Price is quite high on this, as you can get a Model F XT, or an AT if you are really vigilant for this price, but it is new old stock, that's a rarity.

That was actually a decent price for a NOS black one, I'd say. They usually go for at least $150 used.

I actually did just get ... another F AT for just under this on Ebay. It arrived today. Those M13s are cool though.

It was there last night for sure, I saw it then. You need vigilance to find them for those sorts of prices.

I would say that I have a friend I have been trying to help get one, but he doesn't even want to spend $200, so it wouldn't be likely that I would find one that cheap before another $200 one anyway, I suppose. I could keep an eye out.

I can't imagine shipping one of those bricks to Germany will be cheap.

I can't imagine shipping one of those bricks to German will be cheap.

Not that it is cheap, but the USPS flat rate board game box goes international for around $80 and easily holds any keyboard, even a 122-key.

But I sympathize with the seller, I have pretty much stopped selling internationally on ebay for a variety of reasons, postage being only one of them.

"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous if you are into this tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air.
A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?"

That's a nice find, but I'd be surprised if that cable outer rubber doesn't disintegrate when touched.  The "flat" cables tend to do that after a long time.

That's a pretty fair price for an AT, I paid that, and they go for even more usually.
