With re-furb prices being around $300 or so from Rita you would STILL have a brand new piece for around $700-800......thats still not too bad.......all in all that was a great price on those pieces.......congrats! =D>

I got the tracking numbers today and all should be here by Thursday this week. I will update here by Saturday on the outcome. The best part is that I have seven days to return if there are any major problems. However I agree with most of you that even if they need Roland to repair them I could not have bought them for the shape there in. 400.00 a piece on ebay would be a steal. I talked to the guy prior to shipping and asked about scratches and the like and he could not find any!!!!!

=D> Well After getting everything in place and hooked up I have to say I'm pretty happy with the purchase. These units are mint not a scratch anywhere there aren't even any finger smudges around any of the knobs!!!!!! The guy who had these must have been a freak about his equimpment. There are no problems at all and the packaging took a lot of extra effort. I hope you guy have this kind of luck with your purchases.
