"Up for sale is a (1) very rare R.A. Mini Moog synthesizer Model D. The serial number is 1045, it's the 45th Mini Moog on the planet and it's manufactured in March 1971. All boards have serial number 1045 except the vco board which has serial 1043. Jim Scott, who worked with Robert Moog in Trumansburg N.Y., told a friend of mine that it was messy in the beginning days of the factory. It was quite normal that synths left the factory with different numbers on the boards inside. The most important thing is that the boards are all R.A. Moog ones. Someone installed cv / gate inputs a couple of years ago, so it's not fully original anymore unfortunately. But the cv / gate is working fine.

The synthesizer sounds absolutely awesome! The oscillators are very raw and the filter is way better than on newer Minimoog synthesizers.

The synth is just been serviced and in perfect working condition. It's running on 220v and there is an European plug installed to the lead."
