    That’s kinda high, but if you can swing it by all means grab it, but don’t listen to me as I have a soft spot for white Marshals .

    I'm in the Windsor, Ontario area. Shipping would be a BIOTCH for a half stack to SK but if you're up for a drive..............;)

    Never had a full stack. Three half stacks over the years. Two left. Would like to someday. But would be for aesthetics only. I'd like to hear it once in a while. But can't justify the need. But the price you're talking about I'd have to really want it bad. Have other things on my list at the moment. Or does that price include travel cases?

    No travel cases and no, I haven’t bought it. After weighing opinions here I’m Leaning towards the ‘I’ll pass’ side unless the price drops, but its been there for over a year with no price drop. I could trade my current half-stack to the shop but would obviously get FAR less than me selling it privately.

    My main concern is although its seriously pristine what might be any underlying issues with the caps or motherboard after sitting unplayed for that long. The shop checked it, and it works fine now but what about in a couple of months?

    Now that I poo-pooed on the $5k white full stack...once I decide I want a piece of gear I don't really care what it cost and have a history of overpaying. :shrug:

    If it has been there that long and it os that rare to be pristine it is far overpriced. I still say perhaps 5k max CDN. Thats like $150 US. :applause:

    I may even walk away from the deal once but it's clear I'm going to fold like a cheap lawn chair. :realmad:

    If you're lookin for a museum piece, 5 grand will get you something much cooler than a workhorse in a white blanket.

    (Not dissing the mighty 2203, I love them with all my heart.)
