Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3 Analog Synthesizer SN 1827 w/ Anvil Case

via this auction

"Sequential Circuits (SCI) Prophet 5, Rev 3.0 Polyphonic Analogue Synthesizer. This unit was stored in an anvil case for about 20 years and is near museum quality

Recently serviced, tuned up, calibrated by Analog Synth Service in Berkeley. .

> Replaced bypass caps, battery; cleaned pots, switches, key contacts; replaced ICs 204, 205, 209, 210, CA3082; ROM & power board upgrade; RAM upgrade; tuned & scaled.

It is in near-mint condition except for two things:

The ink on the front badge has worn off from years of being in a case. I am including a brand new reproduction badge from Perfect Circuit Audio. You can choose to put it on, or not. See fourth photo above for evidence of the reproduction badge
There are two small 2" scratches (cosmetic, not deep) on the bottom paint.
If you know vintage SCI gear the knobs often get flaking paint and damage from use. This has none of that. It looks like nobody's ever turned a knob. Internally, the J-wires look like the unit has never even played. It is simply in amazing condition.

Includes Anvil case with brand new foam, foot switch, replacement "Prophet 5" badge, and original owners' manual."
