That's cheap for out here, usually you see crummy beat up Phonographs with missing parts sitting in Anti-Q stores for that much money.
Key word: "sitting."
I got my VV 8-30 for about $400 with its original finish, but it needed an additional $200 in parts. I'd say one in good original condition, ready to play, is maybe a $700-$800 machine. Problems (depending on what's wrong) drop it into the $350-$500 range.
