EMS Synthi Hi-Fli Guitar Synth

Title link takes you to shots pulled from this auction. Details:

"Legendary and very rare guitar synthesiser, designed by David Cockerell, and launched in 1973. As used by David Gilmour, Steve Hackett, Pete Cosey, and Chemical Brothers, to name a few. Serviced by EMS in Cornwall in 2004, when they fitted the envelope bypass modification. Unfortunately the stand is long gone, but the unit is in good condition (considering it’s age), and full working order. Took me a year to come round to the idea of selling it, but I don’t use it anymore, and this unit doesn’t deserve to end up gathering dust on a shelf. Please contact me if you’ve got any questions."

  1. Hey! Someone swiped that from my TARDIS! I need it back, or I won't be able to leave the Earth!

  2. Harghh, I remember when I inject my guitar into my Ems Synthi Aks just for youn this is recorded in live in 1981 (guitar in Ems with ring modulation and RSF and other synth...)
