It is now mine. Thanks for the input everyone. Guy said he owned it in his homefor 16+ years and bought it "almost" new from an operator I know. Said he recently replaced the CPU board for $500. Overall it looked great. The playfield was sort of dirty but no damage. The bug count windows were very hazy. I don't think it had been shopped/cleaned since he owned it. I asked to take the glass off, and I had to show him how to do it. When we took the glass off to look underneath, the gunk accumulated on the edge was way worse than my routed JM I got a few months ago. Inside of the cabinet was very clean. The glass had a few more scratches than I would have liked to have seen, but that's an easy fix. I know there is a factory clear coat, so I think some Treasure Cove polish should fix the playfield up nicely. The cabinet had one quarter sized scrape in the paint, but the rest of it looked great. DMD was crisp and bright. Played a couple of balls and everything seemed to work. Moving bug moved very smooth and quietly. I noticed the left flipper would briefly stick every 20 flips or so, but I think that's just because it was dirty. Flippers were strong. He also did confirm what BlueIrocGuy said, only 1500 produced.
Guy would not go under $1800, and I was hesitant to offer that. I told him I would think about it. We went back downstairs and started talking to his wife. We made small talk and the conversation somehow turned to how she was having trouble with Google Adwords.
Guess what I do for a living?
I have all the Google Adwords certs, and am one of the 18 "Partner Ambassadors" in all of USA and Canada selected by Google. I was like, "I can help you with that, ma'am." 2 hours later, he's offering me to trade the pinball to help his wife with her Google/Internet problems... which are plentiful.
Worst case is I pay $1000 for the machine and help his wife, best case I pay nothing and his wife becomes a client!
