Roland JUPITER-8 SN 151364


via this auction

"There were 9 versions of the Jupiter-8 and this is version 1.

Epic, vintage, legendary.

It's the 1264th Jupiter 8 ever produced. Around 3000 were produced in total.

Based on the serial number I estimate that it was made around February of '82, 1 year after they started manufacturing.

It's one of the earlier 12 bit models, just before they started using a 14 bit D/A converter.

Serial no. 151364

Perhaps Roland's most classic sought after keyboard."
