Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev SN 0482
via this auction
"This is a very rare Rev 2 version with the sought after SSM chips. It's in great shape and fully functional. Huge warm analog tone, maybe the most classic of all the polysynths, the Rev 2 is THE Prophet 5 to get as it has a warmer tone than the Rev 3 versions with the Curtis Chips. A must have for any serious synth collection. It does have very minor imperfections but overall I would say it's in super clean near minty shape (considering its age, this is saying quite a lot). It looks to have been babied most of its life, not road worn or rusty or having ever seen lots of use, even the bottom is in excellent shape. The synth is 100% fully functional and sounds amazing. It was recently fully serviced Wine Country (the original SCI guys and the place to get SCI gear serviced). Includes original footswitch and manual."
