That $3000 one has been on ebay as long as I can remember. It will never sell at that price.This was my first sax! Very nice...didn't know what I had really. I sold mine for $1300 about 5 years ago. It was in used but great condition, as I was the second owner. I have seen them for sale (eBay mostly) for as much as $3000, and as little as $1000 locally. I really doubt the $3000 one sold though...Are you thinking about buying it?
