Anyone got one of these stashed under the bed?

I can't quite believe how much this thing sold for!

Wow! Craziness...

It retailed for £2700 originally (1985 money):

For a moment I had regrets about giving away my old yamaha mt120 4 track, but a quick check on ebay tells me that they're still sensible money. :)

I actually do have a 388!!! Though it's not stashed under my bed nor am I ever selling it! I love that machine - I serviced it recently and even replaced the worn vinyl on the arm rest.

One of those was featured in a studio on the 'Other Songs' YouTube page a few months back (Canadian studio showcase type site, like Produce Like a Pro, but done by a home studio guy rather than a pro)

Seems to be another example of 'if its in a pro studio as a secret weapon, it immediately commands silly money on eBay'

Might do one of my own featuring some of the junk I've got, see if I can bump up the price a bit.
