Modded Oberheim OB-12 w/ Custom White Knobs

via this auction

"Excellent condition OB-12 modded by the Blue Lantern guy.

From the original auction in August 2016:

"Up for sale is a customized oberheim OB-12 viscount synthesizer. The following modifications were done by myself:

-main output upgraded to hi-fidelity LM4562 dual hi spec op-amps.
-aux out upgraded to hi-fidelity LM4562 dual hi spec op-amps.

-Graphic LCD replaced by modern black and white color. Contrast Knob installed for manual contrast adjusting on the fly. The adjuster has a soft rubber knob, locatied near the screen.
-led replaced with colorful type. UV, BLUE, WHITE, ORANGE, YELLOW on most of the menu related and FX related sections.
-Knobs upgraded to hi spec cream color knobs with brass inserts.

I have the keyboard, and the USA power plug. The manual can still be downloaded online.

The synth looks great however, the analog output doesn't work. No headphone, no main, no aux. The digital output works fine. It should be a simple repair to get a new D/A converter in it, however, it has never bothered me. Making allowances for a repair in the price."
