Mexican Elvis Impersonator's Original 1974 Moog Minimoog Analog Synthesizer SN 4102
via this auction
"Listed here for the serial number itself is the world's last 50 Dollar Minimoog, purchased from a Mexican Elvis impersonator in the late nineties, traded for a Moog Liberation, and gigged with and cared for by me since 2004. the co-inventor of the voltage controlled synthesiser, Herb Deutsch, played this Minimoog at Knobcon 3 (pictured).
work done: I upgraded the mod box with brand new glide and decay rocker swtiches, a usable glide footswitch input (the original switch inputs on the Minimoog use a nonstandard jack which uses a deprecated 3/16" plug size), and pushbutton momentary switch for glide. the tune knob is a larger knob the same size as VCO 2 and 3 frequency. in the mid-2000s we put new bushings in the keyboard. before i decided to sell it, it was serviced by someone with more experience with Minis than i do and some pots and both bulbs were replaced, switches cleaned, and everything calibrated."
