Thanks--I've viewed the ad now. This model was made in the 90's and Lowrey organs have advanced technologically quite a bit. This was indeed one of the better organs offered at the time and would have sold for a hefty price tag, though Lowrey's take a huge hit when sold because they are tremendously overpriced and depreciate quickly. I think $2,000 is a reasonable price for it but I'd be more comfortable closer to $1,500. I checked the previous listings on eBay and it looks like they have been trying to sell it for about a month, with an initial listing price of $7,500! (they never would have gotten that). The current price represents two price reductions. Keep in mind the shipping costs for something like this if you're far away. Just shipping across one state could run at least $500 and that may not include delivery. Also note this seller has no feedback so make sure you ask any questions you need to. There are a lot of Lowrey's on the market across the US. You may try checking craigslist and other local listings for whats in your area. Best wishes!
