Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 SN 5899

via this auction

"No fret, I'll get one back when the time comes any case, this is Prophet 5 you want. This synthesizer has been well loved, and routinely serviced by the Wizard of the P5, Greg Montalbano at Analog Synth Service in Oakland, CA.

The Awesome:
- 120 factory presets (sysex files from Greg available for buyer).
- later model Serial # 5899, stable and reliable.
- Greg recently serviced the synth 07/2020
Greg updated the synth with the following:
- Latest 10.5 MIDI implementation
- Power supply has new transformer for less heat and lower noise.
- All keyboard j-wire & contacts thoroughly cleaned and adjusted where necessary.
- Tuned and Scaled.
- All switches and knobs have been cleaned and tested.
- Completely recapped.
- Very clean P5 inside and out.
- Comes with Anvil style hardcase for safe transport. (Will not ship)

The action is butter and the sound is what you'd expect and much more.

The Bad (but not really):
No bad issues here, all cosmetic and does not affect functionality whatsoever.
- A few key caps have minor cracks, could be replaced or not, fine as is - see pics
- Decay and Resonance knobs have scuffs, perfectly fine as is - see pics
- Slight crack in the walnut from over tightening the screw on one side panel (happened before me). Perfectly solid as is - see pics
- The keyboard is older, so there are a few squirrels in the keys.

Greg adjusted all keys and gave a clean bill of health. Assures it's good."
