This wasn't used by the previous owner, so arrived
with almost no usage on the meter (0 operation, 0 LCD, 5 power on).
It has some scratches on top cover and rear due to transportation
in the facility, but not from actual usage. So internally it is
new, but shows some minor wear on exterior. This sold new at most
retailers for around $23,000. So this is a steep savings indeed.
This is the big daddy of P2 decks, a rare find in this kind of nearly
un-used demo condition.
