    I have the opportunity to buy a used Janome 6600P machine in almost new condition for $800. Any comments on the price or the machine will be appreciated.

    Great price - I love mine, but you have to make sure it is always threaded properly.

    I paid $800 plus a trade in for a used 6500 last year so I think you are getting an excellent deal!

    Machine has a stellar reputation, that's a good price if it checks out.

    I love my 6600! Your price is almost half of what I paid a year ago. If it checks out, you got a great deal.

    I have one. I've had to work out some bugs and I still struggle with tension, etc.. but it's ok. If I had it to do again I'd consider a cheaper straight stitch machine with FMQ capabilities--like the 1600P-QC. I'd CONSIDER the machine again if someone offered me a deal like the one you've been offered ( but not for $1600 that I paid for mine new).

    BTW, you can get a new 1600P-QC for about $800. Just a thought....

    I would buy it, I paid A$2,400 2 years ago. Everything is sooo much more expensive down under. I do like my 6600P it is a great work horse.

    Sounds like a good deal. I have a 6500 and really like it. Mine likes Aurafil thread and quilting with the feed dogs up.

    It is an excellent price for an excellent machine. Make sure it has been serviced recently, and if not, ask for someone to give it a quick checkup before buying, just like you would before buying a car.
    The Janome 6600 is a fantastic machine, you'll love the Accufeed. Good luck...enjoy your new baby once you get her.

    Thank you all for your advice. I have decided to buy it and once it gets here I will take it in for a quick check up at the Janome dealer.

    Holy wow, grab it and run for sure...I love love my 6600P, and it is correct in saying just make sure you correctly thread the machine...it is one sturdy machine. Janome has a great reputation....can't see you going wrong on this purchase...If a deal like that came up, I would purchase another one for sure just so I had 2 :oops:

    I think yes. Bought mine for $700 from a Janome dealer (my regular LQS). Mine shows some wear on the bed.

    BTW- I like to call mine "experienced" as opposed to "used" :)

    It's a great machine and a real workhorse. The price is a good one.

    Great Price! I was quoted $1900.00 just yesterday for a new 6600P. I thought the price was a little high.
