This time - for sure.
4 months old; used out twice; mint condition
original box; AC cord; music rack, sustain pedal; owners manuals (2)
I will INCLUDE 32 mg CF card AND Kaces gig bag.

Price to SZ members only $2150 plus insured shipping to your place (estimate $60-75 in USA).

I will list this on eBay on Tuesday 11/06, probably for $2200 + shipping.

I am only selling this because I also have a 3K and don't need two arrangers. The G70 is a pleasure to play; the 76 keys are great. The weight is considerable and probably the main reason why I am selling. This is a primo board.

Cass your story sounds familiar Good luck.
Last night I played the G70 and thought I gotta have rocks in my head for selling it it.It is primo no doubt about it, weight became an issue for me, especially since I'm doing mostly 1 hour gigs. I'm sure if I were selling the Tyros 2 the same thoughts would be going thru my head.

cassp,
If the weight is a big factor, have you considered a case with wheels like the Gator hard and soft range of bags. I have a 9000PRO and it travels everywhere with me on "Gator" wheels. Very little lifting required.

Shipping to Australia would probably be a few hundred USD, but I'll try to find something out that's more definite.

I have a Gator case with wheels, but it's getting it up and down the stairs that's the killer. The Gator adds about another 12-15 lbs. easily. That's why I picked up the Kaces gig bag; less than 5 lbs.

Yep I know the "challenge". My gator now follows me up and down stairs (carefully so as not to jar the internals). Definitely not carried.

I shipped one to
Northern Scotland..shipping was $360.00 US Fedex
Took 10 days safe and sound. I would assume Norway to be in the range or more or less.

Make sure you declare it a "USED" instrument when you ship....that will save you on tarriffs on the other end.

doc - I'm presently negotiation a sale to Cleveland, just a few hours away from me. I really would prefer not to ship overseas. I know that shipping to Laos is $900, but that's in the opposite direction. I would suggest you check with your local FedEx and see how much it would cost to send a pick-up tag. That way you would have complete control over the package once it leaves the seller. For this G70 and all the goodies, the box is 60 lbs. 57x17x9 inches.

Hey cassp I was just found out the G-70 has a built in power supply, and from what I've gathered it isn't switchable. (We're all on 220 volts over here) So then it is better that you sell it in the US.

Cheers!

You sure about that? I watched a highres image of the back of it, and that silver sticker next to the poweroutlet said "110v" so I assumed they made several versions of it with different powersupplies.

Fran,

While the power supply itself will operate on 240 volts, the connector must be rewired for that correct voltage configuration. Your plug (power connector) is wired for 117V-AC, thus the placement of the silver label.

It, like most other of these keyboards, has what they call a "Switching Power Supply" which simply means the power supply will automatically adjust to the power supply within its band (110-240) in whatever country it is in. It uses the standard IEC connector at the keyboard end, and all you need is an IEC power cord with your countrys' plug configuration at the "wall socket" end.

Cass,

Still have the stone, but it's in my bladder now where it doesn't cause pain.

What's your feeling about letting someone come and try a board you have for sale on eBay?

My original thought would be - no.

I wouldn't let anyone come to my house. I just tell them I am not setup for demos and they should know what they are buying before they bid on it. Tell them it is already packed. Give him a 24 hour DOA guarantee. He pays shipping both ways. I tell them the only thing I can guarantee is that it is a working G70 I don't guarantee that you'll like it or that it will fit your needs or wants.
If he just wants to see if he likes it tell him to go to the local music store and try one out.
I'd rather sell it for a few bucks less and get someone that knows what it is and is going to be no problems

Had a person about an hour away who asked if he could see it. I said it was packed up; he said he'd repack it for me. I still said no. I had an exchange with another person about an hr. away and he offered for me to come check his board. I reconsidered my original offer and told prospect #1 I'd meet him at my church job. He missed the message and was disappointed I didn't call him at the number he left.

What a PITA. I agree with Mike; don't open yourself up to this aggravation.

Now, will someone please put a bid on my G70 so I can buy that XK-1.

If you have had conversations , both email and phone calls..you can tell if someone is legit..I have visited many sellers at their homes and vise versa..Never any problems..

I think you may be over concerned..

Cass I met the buyer of my G70 at a Dunkin Donuts coffee shoppe. The buyer knew the G70 since a friend of his owned one. Worked out with out a hitch both a happy buyer and a happy seller.

I might let a buyer pick it up, as others have suggested, after he has paid by paypal so we don't have to exchange large sums of money.
But someone who's just looking or just wants to try one because he's never seen one in person........send him to the music store.
