Yamaha CS60 SN 1497

via this auction, also on Reverb

"Unbelievable original 1970s Yamaha CS60 Synth. This was imported into the UK very early on in their production and was only the second one in the UK. It was imported by Mark Stevens of Mankind, who famously used this on Top of the Pops in 1978 to play Dr. Who. He can be seen playing this exact synth on their recording that day. It has been in his possession ever since and we recently had the opportunity to purchase this off of the friend who received it upon his death. It really is a synth of legends! It is in full working order, and we have videos of it working for anyone interested. When we received it it was quite dirty so we've given it a wipe down but have left the tape on the front for provenance. The exterior case is good condition with a few marks throughout. This really would be an amazing addition to any studio or collection."
