[quote=cgiles]I went to the Smithsonian Museum the other week. When I asked to see their ancient instruments exhibit they gave me directions to Fran's house. I heard one of his keyboards is powered by a key tied to a kite. But enough about the G70.....
I know your kidding but too many of us get hooked into the latest is the greatest syndrome. Would you give up a late 50's B3 ? Or a Les Paul, Strat. Tele, or classic amp from that era ? Didn't think so. Although I never owned one ( almost did but the BK9 came out just in time ) I think the G70 was ahead of its time and like my Bk9 can still do a very good job, especially for the gigging musician.
Are the sounds and a few featurs "THAT" much better on a 5K keyboard. We all know the audience can't tell.
