Thing is, $4k, just isn't some impossible amount of money to spend on
something you want. Personally I would have stopped bidding at $50, maybe
$100, and didn't bother to bid since it was way above that the first peek I
took. I don't want it that bad, and frankly still expect to find something
not too far from it cheap, and I do like looking.

You have to wonder though, if one of us HAD just this unit, and nothing
else even close to it in terms of original etc. condition, would $3850 pry
it away?

The other thing I am curious about is if this is just a box of stuff this
person found, or is it something pieced together to make the most
attractive eBay listing?
