Best Craigslist find so far: Roland JX-10 with a couple of sticky keys, but otherwise working fine for $30.

A couple of years ago, I scored a Neumann M147 on CL for $500. Too good of a deal-- I had to flip it.

I also picked up a late 70's Ovation Balladeer for $90 at a pawn shop the same summer. Ahh, the summer of my good deals...
