Richard D. James Aphex Twin Yamaha CS-5 SN 10044 w/ Etched Selected Ambient Works II Liner Notes



via this auction

"This no ordinary synthesizer; in fact this is the ultimate, holy grail of Aphex Twin memorabilia. This CS-5 was previously owned by Richard D. James, who hand-etched the liner notes to Aphex Twin’s seminal “Selected Ambient Works Volume II” on the bottom of it. Those etchings were photographed and used for SAWII’s artwork.

This synth was purchased by me in 2006 from a Vemia auction in the UK. Other than loaning it to Ghostly/Suction Records recording artist Solvent to record his RDJCS5ep 12-inch in 2011, the synth has been carefully stored at my house. The synth has never been serviced, repaired, or modified by me, and is in the same condition as when I received it. It runs on 230V UK power, with a UK plug. You can see some additional etchings and markings in the photos - these were all in place (and likely done by Aphex Twin himself) when I received it. It’s in perfect working order as far as I know, but I offer no guarantee of its functional condition; anyone who’s buying this will surely be buying it for its provenance.

I can provide the winning bidder with all of my email correspondence with Vemia about this Yamaha CS-5."
