Sequential Circuits Prophet VS SN 0613
via this auction
"For sale is a Sequential Circuits Prophet VS keyboard. It's mostly functional but does have a few issues.
The main issues are that the joystick and data slider are not working. Data slider will responds (rarely) if moved just the right way but not easily so it would need a repair or replacing. I believe Wine Country in San Jose might have data sliders replacements for around $25, and I've also seen people mod these with more robust potentiometers instead of the finicky slider. Not sure why the joystick isn't working, it might just be a simple fix. Also a few of the buttons require harder pushes and program buttons 7 & 9 are not working even if pushed firmly. You could get around all these issues using it as a sound module and controlling it with midi controllers. Otherwise everything else appears to be functioning as it should. The screen still has a little backlight life left in it and there are replacement screens available as well if desired. Cosmetically it's in good shape but it has some wear on the front/sides and a couple small chips in the keys...
priced low accordingly."
