Recently serviced by renowned tech Greg M of Analog Synth Service (membrane panel replacement, calibration, tuning) completed in May 2018.

Interior is clean, zero dust and corrosion. All boards look great, nearly brand new. Comes with power cord (not pictured).
Exterior is near pristine (some oxidation present on upper right of top panel) but overall excellent condotion (9/10) for a circa 1985-86 vintage instrument."
