just found one for sale, 2500GBP (but i think i can do some haggling heh). dont seem to turn up so i have no idea of the value but seems like a bargain even at that price. opinions (other than "why havent you bought them already").

The M-6000 is an xxx-rare item which pops-up in Japan about once every other year but goes for somewhat cheap prices, c. 600/800€.

The reasons for this are unclear but :
a) It's old and relatively unknown due to utter scarcity,
b) Japanese 6000s are almost always beat up like mad,
b) Weight and size are also a problem when thinking of either importing one or having it travel from Sapporo to Kagoshima.

Haggle and buy if you can and if it is good shape - then hand it over to me because I am persuaded you neither need nor want an M-6000 :)
