Korg Mono/Poly Analog Synthesizer w/ Custom Colored Knob Caps & Walnut Panels

via this auction

"Here's a Korg Mono/Poly of a different color.

First off, the entire wooden case has been replaced by a Synthwood custom enclosure. This includes solid walnut side panels and front, and a plywood undercarriage. The Synthwood enclosure is more beautiful, much sturdier and more durable, and even lighter than the original particle board case. (See for more details. In fact, it was this Mono/Poly that Synthwood used to get the dimensions for producing these enclosures).

Secondly, i swapped out (identical but different colored) knobs from two Korg KMX-8 mixers in order to give this Mono/Poly a more color-coded interface (as opposed to the original palette of gray & cream). Red-orange knobs are now used for the Mod & Filter controls. Yellow knobs are now used for all the Levels, Intensity & Volume. Check out the photos.

It also comes with the following extras!
An original Owner's Manual, plus an additional spiral-bound copy of the Owner's Manual
A (Moog Voyager) gig bag into which it snugly fits, which has been irreverently rebranded (the rebranding looks less obvious in person). The gig bag is a $99 value."
