A gold-painted Vernis Martin VV-XVI was just listed on eBay from Illinois, and talk about a beauty.

Thought it was worth sharing.

Too bad owner "can't figure out how it works." Gee, even I could do that! ;)

With a rare and important machine like this, I doubt any buyer would be too concerned about the motor is working or not. This is a Vernis Martin XVI, incidentally. I have one that I got last year as some of you may recall that I still haven't done anything with except rebuild the reproducer and give the motor a good once over, so it at least can get played.

"Can't figure out how it works" - that usually goes along with "As Is" to indicate that the seller wants to avoid any issues of possible damage in the future. If you buy this & find that the motor is broken, he can write back & say he never claimed it did.

I will be bidding, on the merits of the included several spare needles.

Naw, April Fool.

I personally don't like the garish ones like this, although the underhood gold (and sometimes orange) is handsome at times. But for those who might be wondering about the state of the motor, seeing the crank upright rather than hanging limply might indicate the springs are intact.

And as we all by now know, if a spring is busted only Sean will want the useless thing.
