I also have one of the plastic 1970's Selmer 104 oboes for outdoor use. I managed to get it for only about $300 US on ebay, cleaned it up, and invested a bit more to have it serviced. I see those instruments listed occasionally on ebay at 4x what I paid, but am unsure if they sell at that price. I wouldn't say it's up to playing in world class orchestra, but it's quite good for an old plastic oboe. Mine's scale is a bit "wide", flat on the low end. The keywork seems a little cramped; someone with large fingers might find it uncomfortable. But that's a small tradeoff for an inexpensive instrument with a left F and C#-B link.
