For those who don't know, Stewart Armstrong Copeland is an American musician, multi-instrumentalist and composer best known as the drummer for the band the Police.
I'm tempted though I already have a Series IIx.
But this is some serious piece of music history.
May it go to a good home.
It's a steal at the price of $12K USD.
