I'm not a trader but am basing my opinion on past experience.
- Firstly, 32 note polyphony is low by modern standards - even the stingiest and cheapest keyboards have a polyphony that doesn't fall below 64 notes.
- The keyboard is 14 years old. So much has developed and improved in terms of sampling, tonality and eve keyboard action in the last 5 years never mind the last 15!
- The keyboard looks well-maintained and clean which is a bonus, however, if the sounds are tailing far behind the current models, then I wouldn't hold up for much of a claw back in value. I saw a brand new CLP220 Clavinova (released some time in 2005?) advertised in the newspaper at £648. It was over £900 brand new when first released and has considerably modern features even when compared with the CLP3XX range.
Given its age and being generally outdated by the modern market, I'd try advertising it at around the $200-300 mark, with the full expectation of getting less than that.
