1974 Black & Gold ARP Odyssey MKI 2800 SN 283168

via this auction

"Original ARP Odyssey somewhat rare Mk I in Black & Gold. Includes the interface jack modification.

This synth was serviced by CAE Sound to replace the keyboard bushings, power cord, power switch and slider caps and was fully calibrated. The keyboard feels fantastic and the synth is fully functional and sounds great. I wouldn't say its brand new - it definitely shows sign of wear, after all its over 40 years old!

These Mk I Odysseys are definitely unique - the pitch bend knob is a little more functional that the PPC they later used. The duophonic keyboard takes getting used to and while the 4023 filter is a bit thin, it definitely screams on high resonance! Its a great lead synth."
