I just scored one of these for free off of local classifieds

There really isn't much info out there on these. There's like two youtube clips and only one of them has any playing in them.
From what I can tell, they sound a bit like Hammonds, only cleaner. They're solid state amplified, electronic sine wave generator organs.
Total production for all WLM models is below the 10000 units mark. I understand they were mostly intended for the Euro market.

Anybody got experience with these?
Ideas as to what the market value for these are?

I have no experience with these whatsoever, but, no matter what, that's a fuckin' awesome score. This is the sort of thing that fills me with envy; I've never landed these kinds of sweet scores.

We recently acquired a keyboard for free off kijiji, some 70's yamaha thing that doesn't fold up nicely like that thing... but still sounds great. Classifieds like craigslist and kijiji have so many deals on vintage keys... the market is great. Just the week before we found a Juno-6 for $75!!!

i actually prefer juno 6s to the 106, the arpeggiator is amazing and the whole thing just sounds a bit... warmer, for want of a better word. the lack of storable memory is a pain though, i used to have a ring binder filled with sheets of paper with things like 'VCO-4, ATTACK-7, SUB-3' written all over them. never played a juno 60, they're kind of a half way house between the two.
