Yeah. I love those tragic organ ads. I can't stop laughing when they ask for $3000, or even $600. I just think about how many great instruments I could buy with that cash instead, and how much lower the hassle would be.
I think it is HILARIOUS when the seller claims that their organ is in "excellent condition" and then mentions that two keys don't work, and some such other defect is "really easy to fix." If it is all that easy to fix, then why didn't you ever fix it? Uh, I don't believe that "broken" is the same as "excellent condition."
I have a Hammond L122 that works pretty well, and all my friends think it is worth thousands. They can't believe it when I tell them that I would have a hell of a hard time trying to get $200 for it. IF I could find someone who wanted it, and IF they were geographically close, and IF they wanted to lug it back to their house, then they would certainly test it out and find that the minor imperfections make the organ less than a goldmine. I love it, because it is good enough to jam and rock. I would never sell it, because it lets me pretend I am BT Jones (well, a crippled and lame imitation of him, but...).
