"1979 ARP OMNI-2 Vintage Analog String Synthesizer Mostly Working Solina Moog

Looks beatup with scratches and fading. But, most features work. A previous owner even installed two working power outlets on the back. Replacement slider caps have been added to more closely match how it looked when new.

What doesn't work (or doesn't work well):
- Decay and Sustain in ADSR section. These are always at 100% regardless of there the slider is positioned.
- String Fast/Slow Release (top panel, right) seems to be at near 100% (long) if the slider is set a few millimeters to the right. There is no range.
- Single trigger illuminates but doesn't seem to do anything.

This thing is built with steel and is rugged. It weighs 42 lbs."
