Vintage Roland Juno 106 Analog Synth SN 494113 w/ Blue LEDs & Original Box
via this auction
"Its in FANTASTIC condition, no rust just a couple of paint chips on the back corner. All of the artwork is there and looks great. No scratchy pots for they have been cleaned. All of the black coating was removed from all voice chips, and the old pins were replaced with super high quality gold plated pins, and there are super high quality sockets. Now if any of the voice chips EVER go bad all you have to do is pop it open and pull out the bad chip. New blue LED's, because they look awesome. The numeric display, the "A" preset LED and one of the chorus' were kept red. I think it looks cooler with a mix of both colors. The original battery has been replaced with a new one and a socket so if the battery ever goes out, just pull the battery and pop a new one in.
The listing also includes the original box! The fact that this still exist is crazy to me. It is in pretty rough shape with ware on the corners and some rips but all the artwork is there and there is even a sticker with matching serial number on the sides. The previous owner bought it brand new in the 80's and kept the box around. One of the inside flaps read "christmas tree" so I guess it used to store a tree, lol. Regardless its cool."
