Yamaha CS-80’s on eBay right now!

Update 5/15/2013:  CS80 number 1259 is on eBay right now.  Used by Little Feat, not sure anyone buying a CS80 is going to care about this.  Asking price is $17,999!


Update 8/16/11: The $17,999 CS-80 from Perfect Circuit has sold for asking price.  A new record?

I keep an eye on the search term ‘Yamaha CS*’ since I have a CS-50 and am always looking for parts to squirrel away.  Tonight I was surprised to see there is a CS-80 arms race going on.  What’s all the fuss?  Check out some Vangelis CS-80 demo’s on YouTube and you’ll see.

First up is this guy from Perfect Circuit Audio for $17,999 out of Southern California.

Someone’s got some solid Photoshop skills.  That is a mighty fine looking keyboard.  $17,999 is the Buy it Now.

Next is this fellow out of New York -15 minutes from Manhattan to be exact.  It has been fitted with Midi which is quite a job on a monster like this.

Comes with 3 pedals, the legs, top cover etc.  Oh, and only $19,900.  Local pick up only.

Then we have this dusty relic for sale by a seller that specializes in odd stuff.

$18,000 is the ask.  Looking at it I’m thinking this is a $10K-ish instrument since it’s untested and sold as-is.

I think it all started because of this guy.  Also a Midi modified machine.  Also in Southern California.

Yep, this sold on eBay for $12,500.  A seeming bargain.

  1. There is a chucklehead having a laugh right now… he put up 6+ different listings for the same (likely nonexistent) CS 80 for a BIN (offsite) of $1800. LOL.
