Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 SN 4045
via this auction, also on Reverb.
"This is a Rev 3.3 version with no midi (serial number #1000-4045). It's in great shape and fully functional. The only issue is the Freq1 knob for Osc1 doesn't work well, it will turn if you put the knob down a bit while turning. Probably just needs a simple reconnection/cleaning. Also a few of the keys will double trigger if you leave the keyboard sitting unplayed for too long, but it plays fine the more you use it. So it could probably use a little servicing, but otherwise everything else is working great. The Prophet 5 has a huge warm analog tone, maybe the most classic of all the polysynths. A must have for any serious synth collection. Cosmetically it does have some signs of use but overall I would say it's in great shape."
