The real question is not whether it is overpriced or not, its how much do you want it? You mention you have been looking for one like this one for a long time, how patient are you? While it is not worth that price to me, it may well be worth that price to you.
Myself, I have knowingly paid over market for an item when it was exactly what I wanted, where I wanted it, at the time I wanted it, and when I could afford it. As long as you are not buying to resell, it doesn't matter that much. Heck, I knowingly paid over market for my house, by quite a bit. Location was perfect, lot was perfect, era was perfect, etc., etc., so I paid over market. Notice I did not say I overpaid, I paid what it was worth to me, which was more than it was worth to the average buyer in the marketplace. I don't regret it for a moment, and would gladly do it again. The choice is yours.
