I just sold mine SUPER MINT two weeks ago. Here are the pics in case you want to see. (also on my webpage is a free download to a EXS instrument I created if you want to "try the Nord Lead sound out". I sampled the basic sawtooth waves without filter or effects. You can play it in Logic.
I tried selling on Craigslist but got nothing but scammers and lowballers wanting to buy it for $500.00
I originally purchased it from another buying on craigslist two years before that for 850.00 who took really good care of it.
Anyway I finally sold it on ebay after failing to do so on craigslist. Didn't get anything what I wanted for it but I figured I'd let it go into the auction and what's fair is fair, what people want to bid is what I'm going to get.
It sold for 760.00 not including 80 on shipping. I felt 800 to 850 was fair for the super flawless condition it was in but didn't get that. Ebay took 9% after the sale plus auction fees to post, then paypal took some more. So in the end I got 670.00. Pretty big loss since I bought it 850 bucks years ago, babied it and it was perfectly mint. I've seen some sell for more that are in worse condition.
Why don't you put the price in Euros then, if you're in Europe?
It would be much easier to help you then...
But using the current exchange rate, that's 600 euros.
If it's really mint, doesn't sound too expensive...
They cost around 1000 euros new, so, if it's really mint, it's not that bad.
But as always, you might always be able to get it for a cheaper price
It depends on how much you want it...
I should have put the price in Euros that's correct
but about the synth, I don't think it's a 100% mint, it is 7 years old so maybe I should try and get an 80 euro discount or something?
There's no danger in buying an "old" synth like that is there? they can last a long time right?
Sure these are just some of my thoughts. Even an extremely old synth that has been treated well or at least fixed and kept well maintained can and should still be near mint condition. Also if it is in bad or even average shape to me that speaks to how it was treated. Mint is not just cosmetic but could also tell a story as to how the inside has been affected by the treatment. For example, despite gigging every weekend with my Roland D-50 and M1 for over 4 years they were both like new when I sold them, once the cigarette smell went away; an unfortunate annoyance of the time.
