The First Univox Mini-Korg K-2 Monophonic Synthesizer Ever Made?

SN 00001 via this auction

According to the listing:
"THIS IS THE FIRST ONE EVER MADE!!!! Serial number 00001!!!!!!!

This synth powers on, produces a signal, but it definitely needs a full servicing/cleaning. There are 2 screws missing on the left panel, as well as 2 colored knobs on the front switches (see photos).
37 keys, measuring 29 1/2" x 10" x 4 1/4"
Featuring dedicated sliders for low and high pass filters. 2 sliders for ADSR and a switch for each separate effect. Quickly change octaves/waveforms with the 2 large knobs.
I can't emphasize enough what an incredibly cool piece of history this is.
All knobs and switches are original!
Very buzzy and raw tone. Smooth leads, harsh gurgly basses.

Extremely special piece as it was the first one put into production!!"
