1974 Moog Minimoog Model D SN 4346

via this auction

"Vintage 1974 Minimoog Model D. I am the second owner. I bought this in 1978. The serial number is 4346. The wooden cabinet has been rebuilt and refinished. Some of the wood was replaced due to wear and tear. The badge on the rear panel was never put back on afterwards but I still have it and will include it. Everything else is original except the power cord.

This comes with a heavy duty Anvil road case where it has lived for most of the last 20 years. The case was re-foamed a few years ago and is in great condition.

There are a couple blemishes in the wood and I took photos of them up close. The keyboard controller panel where the Mod and Pitch wheels are has the protective clear plastic coating fraying at the bottom. See photo.

The boards were removed and all the pots, switches, and connections, were cleaned about 4 years ago. All the oscillators and filter were calibrated at that time as well. The keyboard has had all new rubber bumpers installed and all the keys were leveled. The keyboard contacts and bus bar were all cleaned as well. It has been in the case in my closet ever since. This unit has the very desirable old-style oscillator boards in it.

This thing is a monster but I never use it. It's too nice a unit to live in a closet."
