I've managed to pick up a couple... one was cheap because the former
owner tried to repair the keyboard... with a soldering iron (for the
uninitiated, it has a flexible membrane, not a PCB inside, and is
prone to oxidation). Fortunately for me, I had just the keyboard in
a pile of stuff I got from the local C= dealer when they closed (the
principle of Classic Attraction at work again ;-)

They are around, but, like anything that's 15+ years old, not as
common as they used to be. I know another person in Columbus with
one; he might sell for the right price (he tried to sell it to me
once, but he wanted 2x what I was willing to pay, and I'm cheap
when it comes to not-so-uncommon things).
