AKAI AX80 Vintage (1984) 8-voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"It's both cosmetically and functionally excellent. There are no dents or dings in the metal chassis. The paint, print, and logos are still intact and glossy. The end cheeks also have a nice glossy finish. The membrane buttons all work. There are no tears or rips in the membrane. All other knobs and controls work as intended. None of the keys are chipped/broken/repaired and they all trigger notes correctly. Yes, there are scuffs and marks on the end cheeks and a few very light scratches on the plastic display panel. The latter can likely be completely buffed out using plastic polish, if you desire. As you can see from the pics, though, the machine is in terrific condition overall. It's not like many of the beat-up examples you see on the 'Bay, where the sellers are asking outrageous prices."
