"For your consideration is the closest you'll find to a new-old-stock Sequential Circuits Prophet 600. As you can see from the pics, the synth looks as if it was never used, and according to the original owner, it pretty much hasn't. Also included is the original box and packing foam, the original preset-cassette, and the original manual. The original receipt of purchase is inside the manual, dating to 5/25/1985.
The synth was recently serviced by Analog Synth Service in Oakland, the top Sequential tech.
It is worth noting that there are small pockets of air under the touchpad, which can be felt and/or heard, but in no way affect the functionality of the touch pad. All buttons work properly.

About the P600:
Released in 1982, the Prophet 600 is the brother of the legendary Prophet 5 synthesizer, but has its own distinct character and sound. The Prophet 600 was also the first commercial synthesizer to implement MIDI and can store up to 100 patches in memory. The Prophet 600 features 6 voices of polyphony and has 2 oscillators per voice (VCOs - saw, triangle and pulse), oscillator sync, a low pass filter, 2 envelopes for VCF and VCA, arpeggiator, sequencer, glide and poly mod functions (to create FM timbres). The Prophet 600 is a versatile and capable analog synth and it excels at drones, pads, brassy sounds and cutting leads. The Prophet 600 "Gligli" upgrade also enhances it further with snappier envelopes, more LFO waveshapes, new arpeggiator functions, unison detune and more."
