Great eBay phrasery, pt. 3
This might be a cheap shot--knocking the text and terms of an eBay listing from the Russian Federation-- but I can't help myself:
"Russian vintage RARE Electronic synthesizer FAEMI MINI 1960's years. For this long time the synthesizer was very well kept. The synthesizer has few surpluses."
OK, pretty funny, right? "1960's years"? "Surpluses"? But there's more:
And then there's this:
"The synthesizer never opened. The synthesizer has a protective seal (in a photo)"
Great! A non-Polivox, NOS Russian synth from the 60s with an elegant, novel keytar solution. And it's "completely the worker." Who wouldn't want this thing?
Well, the auction does have a couple contradictory terms:
So it isn't from the "1960's years"? And this gem:
What does this mean? That (a) the model line varies from unit to unit, or (b) this particular synth has been modified in some way, nulling its "never been opened" claim, or (c) both?
And there's the power supply (220v, Russian standard plug) and the shipping terms ("Shipping will be 90 .00 $," "delivery during 4-2 weeks") to deal with...
Still, with all of that in mind, I can't stop myself from bidding on this thing. A 9v whiteface Russian Casio with selectable "drawbar" footing? In what looks like a binoculars case? Dude, yes.
