I did buy a traded-in MiniMoog from a local shop for 150 quid though! :mrgreen:
I wonder if the original owner thought it broken being monophonic?? - Ive heard such stories from a certain caped virtuoso :tongue:
Yep, that Mini came from Jack Wilde! When he realised it wan't broken at all Rick did offer to bring it back, or pay a more suitable price, but Jack said it was no use to him if it only played one note at a time!
I'll never know how I dropped so lucky on getting my bargain. I already had one Mini (the one I still have). I went into the local music store and the manager said "I've just got something you'll be interested in - make me an offer." I offered 150 and he took it!
Late 1980s, IIRC.
Eventually I sold it to friend who stripped it out of its case and did unspeakeable things with it.
