Korg POLY 61 SN 704524 w/ MIDI & Custom Black Side Panels

via this auction

"Very nice, Korg Poly-61 programmable polyphonic synthesizer. This is an early production version, with factory MIDI added.

This synth isn't perfect condition, but everything works as it should and recent maintenance has been completed. Main board and backup battery have been replaced. Original board is included. Keyboard has been completely disassembled and all the contacts cleaned and reconditioned with caicote.

Knobs are showing age, but all the buttons and knobs work as they should. Volume knob is kind of scratchy and may need a little contact cleaner. One key has a slight bend in it, might just need reseated. Only thing I haven't tested is MIDI since I don't have something to trigger it with. The inserts for the screws that hold the main panel to the sides tend to spin, so removing those screws can be a little tricky.

Great sounding 80s synth for that "Stranger Things" sound. Same synth featured in Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters theme song."
