Modded Rick Wakeman Signed 1972 Minimoog

via this auction
"This is an auction for a nearly 40 year old classic synthesizer, the original Minimoog. This one was built in 1972. It is a working machine which has recorded and been studio based for the past 5 years. The metal rear cover is signed by synthesizer legend Rick Wakeman the synth was probably built while he was recording "Close To The Edge"- (photographic proof of signing provided)

The serial number is 2469, and the circuit board is the rich and creamy second revision. The tuning has been stabilised so that hassle free playing can be done after a 15 minute warm up. The S-Trig (CV) has been replaced by a 1/4 inch mono jack. The CV inputs have been modded to allow easier control using a Midi to CV converter. Way back in time the PITCH wheel was replaced by a genuine MOOG mini ribbon controller, making this machine somewhat rare. The Keyboard is the original. The case is in good condition, has been repolished and has a brand new Minimoog badge."
