1982 Moog modular on Ebay

Post by CZ Rider » Fri Dec 18, 2009 2:49 pm

Not mine, but always interesting to look at.
Moog 55A on Ebay
This one seems to be built April 2, 1982. Guessing from the serial, this would be a system 55A, without the sequencer. Looks to be stock. If money was not an issue, I would make an offer on this one. :lol:

The asking price is an Ebay loophole. Will probably be sold behind Ebay for less without the Ebay fees. I'm sure the seller won't turn down a resonable offer?

For half that money I could have Roger build a larger system. And it would all be new and working.

I always love those synth auctions that say.."I have a friend who checked it out" and "I'm a guitarist' what they are saying is I don't really know jack about this thing, but somebody else told me it's ok...

Yeah that's a red flag in my book.

"Had a friend check it out" could mean he had his neighbor look at it and go "oooh, ahhhh"

I swear that there was a poster here awhile back that had that same 55 tilted cabinet that was sitting on a tiled countertop, except these were homemade modules, cabnetized, I think from europe, maybe Italy.

I swore that this was the same one until I saw a different picture from the rear with the yellow tags.

Still counld be a scam auction though.

It says that they would accept cash for a local pickup/delivery.. and the background imagery appears in line with the stated location of 'El Monte, CA', so I don't think its a scam, but pricey for sure. For 46k I'd want some sort of professional check up completed before dropping the dough!

And it doesn't even has the sequencer.
