Moog Source Analog Synthesizer SN 6489

via this auction

"Up for sale is a vintage Moog Source. This one is in great vintage condtion with normal scuffs and scratches. There is a faint hairline shadow on a key, its barely visible and not cracked. Everything is original to my knowledge except a mod for what looks like to be an old computer hook up. I am not familiar with the type of connection so I cannot say for sure. I am also not away if this affects any of the other connections around the mod. My technical limitations do not stretch this far. It doesnt however effect the overall sound, output, or functions of the control panel. I have owned about every Moog model made, with the exception of vintage modulars, and this is the best(In my opinion) aside from the Minimoog model D which offers another oscillator. This one differs and expands the sound by offering an on board arppegiator and basic sequencer. It comes with a bound copy of the manual."
