Again, seems like a decent deal but I didn't pay much more than that for mine that was made in '09.
These kits are supposed to be so expensive and coveted. I know its 5 years old but they have never been played (no marks on stock DW heads and in perf. cond.).
Oh well, its all good. Maybe I'll flash him $1,500.00 cash and tell him (in a nice way) "take it or leave it". If he doesnt bite, It wasent meant to be.
Sounds like you got a great deal...Nice.
