Price seems high to me, but it could be because it is spring time. I would look around a little more at other options. Seeing that you are in the great state of Minnesota (my origin), I did a quick search and noted a new 2014 for $6890, a 2007 for $4500, a 2005 for $3999, and a 2004 for $3100.
Good luck! Finding the right Strom is part of the fun.
