Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar Rare Early Model 1983 SN 0136


via this auction

"This unit is somewhere between 'Excellent' and 'Mint', but we tend to be on the conservative side with our synths and will call it 'Excellent.' It is fully functional and appears to be hardly used. The buttons are crisp and all of the knobs feel brand new without any scratchiness. Our technicians have gone over this unit but didn't have to do much. This is a true closet classic collector/museum piece.

Our technicians date this unit to early 1983. It is written on the bottom wood panel, 'SN013G' or 'SN0136' (likely SN0136; pictured here). This early version looks different than later versions, where the MIDI 'IN' 'OUT' and 'THRU' are actually silkscreened into the plastic, whereas this unit has a sticker on top of the plastic."
