360 SYSTEMS SPECTRE Oberheim SEM Based Guitar Synth

via this auction, also on Reverb

"We fully serviced this unit a few years ago and used it occasionally since then. The 360 Systems Spectre is an Oberheim SEM (synthesizer expander module) with a built in guitar interface. The SEM is legendary for its excellent tone, thanks in great part to its sweet multimode filter. We got this unit without a guitar pickup, so it hasn’t been tested with a guitar. We had our tech rewire the transpose A and B jacks so they’re now CV and gate inputs so this unit can be controlled with a Roland or similar type 1 volt per octave synth with CV and gate outputs. Since we don’t have a pickup to test this unit with, we don’t know if the guitar interface section is working, so although we have no reason to believe it’s not working, we cannot guarantee it and are therefore selling it as is. 1 of the latches that holds the case closed is missing but the case still closes ok. There's a new fuse-holder too."
