Wow, this guy has all 12 modules for sale at a stratospheric starting bid of $1000.00. Wonder if he gets any bids? Nice collection, but I'd bet 500-700 is more of a realistic price.

I don't thimk $1000 is too far out of line - common mods will get $50 apiece easily and the less common/more desirable/rarer (whatever) 4 or 5 mods will routinely top $100.

You're right on the prices, but I'd have been shocked if anyone paid a grand for the set. The listing was ended so I'm guessing he got an offer he couldn't refuse :-)

A grand is a lot at once for sure but the set is fairly priced. The last full set I saw sold for $875 on eBay about 5 years ago. The difference is inflation and the changing of hands. eBay fees and shipping costs are up as well. 

This is my set so if anyone is interested let me know. I took the listing down to consider another approach.

When you think of it, the price isn't that out of line considering that some of the rarer modules fetched near 200 bucks at one point. But with the guitar market still in the slump it is, I just don't see a grand...but you just never know. Makes the 800 I spent about 10 years ago on a one off X330/350 Hybrid with orig case and 12 modules look like a great deal! People thought I was nuts spending it back then :-)

I still think you're nuts, but that has nothing to do with your hybrid X deal.

Man, I'm glad the whole collection didn't sell for $1000. I did a lot better selling them individually. Thanks all!
