Good luck and I hope you get them if you'll put them to use! If you can get them for $4k per module I'd take that offer if they work and you've got the money. I think that's a fair price, but due to the "collectors" value I'd expect the asking price to be more in the $12k-$15k range for a pair, but that's just a wild guess. For that price there are lots of other tools that will do the job for a lot less, and I hate seeing the price of great classic gear being driven up by collectors. The people that use the stuff should be able to afford it.

Have you looked into a Chandler curve bender to see if that could possibly be an alternative? It has the advantage of not only a warranty, but also the possibility of a demo period. Also, I used to use the now discontinued Abbey Road plugins including this EQ, and while I know it wouldn't compare to the real thing they were still some of my favorite plugins ever. It's a shame they discontinued support for them.
