Never Powered Vintage 1971/72 ARP 2600 Tonus Logo?

via this auction

Question: would you just pop it on and be the first, or would you have a tech run through it first? :)

"Here's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a really special ARP 2600 Tonus logo synth... that has never even been powered up !

This one comes with an amazing story. We acquired this instrument from an estate sale. Its one-and-only owner was an accomplished retired drummer who had taken sick and could no longer play the drums. So, he traded his drumming equipment in 1971/72 for the "latest and greatest" analog semi-modular synth at the time: the ARP 2600. Well, he wasn't a synthesist, but a drummer-and unfortunately his health continued to deteriorate, so he simply tucked this beauty away in the back of his closet, where it stayed until after his untimely death. He never even turned it on !

We then acquired the ARP 2600 as part of an estate sale a few years ago, and catalogued and stored it in a climate-controlled storage facility."
