SN#666, FR-777 Uber-Rare Original Custom "Silver Face" FR3D71499666

via this auction

"This is the infamously legendary SN#666 Future-Retro silver-faced beast. AKA, “The Mothership” unit. Infamous for its liquid metallic acid sound, muffler mod, and custom soft-blue LED lighting, knobs and work all performed by Jered himself.

This unit was formerly owned by a member of G&R, and has only had 2 owners since then, myself being the second.

It truly sounds like no other 777... and, I’ve had at least one of every other model over the last few decades, including blue, purple and many standard issue black faced units, as well as having owned the only other silver faced unit ever sold.

This one, however, is the only “Mothership”. Its value has gone up and down over the decade or so I’ve owned her. This beast is meant to be •played•, and is not meant for a collection. It is not “mint”. It is not even “excellent”. It may barely be “Very Good”... and none of that matters. It is rock solid, maintained, and ready. It comes in the ugliest, meanest, most perfect travel case on earth. With two extra custom backup knobs and a CONDOR PSU, as properly supplied by Jared. It comes with a hard FR-777 Manual. It is serial number 666 and was commissioned to be made as such. The stencil used for the logo and lettering across the top is unique to this unit’s production heritage, as a portion of the original stencil was lost prior to its production. There is unlimited history and soul to this beast.
You don’t play this instrument. It posses and plays you. It takes you to outer space and back. It has rocked a mesa boogie PA system, a Funktion One gig, even a secret Ninja party at DefCon. It is on countless Highsage, Mosspig, AC Records, Napalm Enema recordings, Detroit Underground vinyl, Nighttripper vinyl and more.

This is one matafaka of an acid beast.

For those who know.
For those who play.
For those who like punishment."
