I don't see that listing but this is a slightly different situation - Sam Ash's primary desire is to sell gear in-store or on their website, with a captive audience. They throw it on Reverb and if it sells, cool.

Chain stores like that are also beholden to national computer systems - the database says a mint OB-6 is X, that's what it gets listed for. They might not have ever carried Sequential so there's no differentiation in the system between keys and desktop.
