  1. That one should have a tricky name, like “The Divorciano,” because any guy who takes that up will have his wife leave him for emotionally abandoning her. The judge will listen to a segment of what he does with it and being a lover of irony, promptly award her everything but the Divorciano. If it is a female judge, he also forfeits the synth and has to sell plasma, too. Holy Zeus, what a beautiful instrument.

  2. I would guess that this thing is a minimum of $3k, just for the Dark Energy synths alone. Looks like he used the original MK1, not the MK2, but perhaps got some custom plates made for them. Hard to say total, but I’d guess anywhere between $5k-8k. If that’s the highest price he paid to make it, I’d say he got a deal, especially for something so unique. Anyone know what part of the world this guy hails from?
