Moog Minimoog Model D SN 5984 w/ Original Manuals

video by Ken St. Onge

"Selling an original Minimoog Model D with original manuals!! Serial number 5984, which would have been made during mid -late 1974. I have not opened it up to check production dates. In good cosmetic condition for its age. All functions work to some degree, but it will need some service. See the video for features and condition."

""This is an original MiniMoog Model D from approximately 1974. It is serial number 5948. I recently purchased this from the original owner, who bought it new and used it as a local touring musician in a 7-piece band in the 70s. It's got tons of mojo, and will make an awesome piece for a collector or a player. I am not a synth expert, but know enough to verify that most of the features are intact in working. Watch the full youtube video to see for yourself.

This is being listed in poor condition, which means that it has both cosmetic and functional issues. Those issues include, but are not limited to the following:

1. One of the keys was long ago cracked and epoxied back together. It works fine, but cosmetically isn't perfect.
2. There is patina, scratching, dings, and other imperfections throughout.
3. The tuning knob doesn't appear to tune very well
4. Many of the pots are scratchy and do not respond as you would assume in some cases
5. Volume and consistency for several keys might no be equal.
6. The filter controls spin and seem to affect the overall output, but will all need maintenance and perhaps repair.
7. The cord, or at least the plug, should be replaced because it's splitting where it meets the plug.
8. Some of the controls are finicky.
9. These are just some of the issues -- there may be others that I don't know about or haven't listed.

Given all these issues, the item is listed in poor condition, and cannot be returned. Buyer agrees that it is sold on an "as is, where is" condition with no gaurantees or warranties, either expressed or implied. Again: Absolutely no returns will be accepted under any circumstance. By purchasing, you agree to that."
