Korg Poly-Ensemble S 70's Poly/Paraphonic Vintage String Synth

via this auction

"Korg Poly-Ensemble S string synthesizer, produced between 1976-1979. This is a divide down/Paraphonic synth, meaning that every key can be played at the same time, however they all share the same FX/filtering. The Poly-S has a number of voices, from Organ, Brass, Strings, Choirs, with a built-in Phaser FX unit. It's an incredibly unique, and lush sounding synthesizer. This particular unit seems to be in working condition, it does have some scratch in the volume pot/knob, and the large buttons that select the voices have a bit of scratch to them. A few of the buttons for the voices get temperamental on occasion, but have never stopped working completely. It probably needs a good cleaning. Also, the power light has never worked since I've owned it, meaning I purchased it as such around 12 years ago. Also, the 'male' end on the power chord is missing some covering, see the photos for what I mean. This hasn't affected the unit in any way that I can tell. One of the keys on the keybed has a visible crack in it, but was fixed a number of years ago with some super glue, again, see the photos for a better understanding of the condition. Lastly, the case/road case has a lot of wear on it, makes sense given the age of the instrument..."
