Overhauled Casio CZ-1 Phase Distortion Vintage Synthesizer

via this auction

"-Full overhaul - the entire unit has been cleaned inside and out (apart from the main PCBs).
-Front panel tact switches replaced, buttons cleaned - ALL of the tact switches in the front panel were desoldered and replaced with high quality ALPS switches.
-Screen replaced with high contrast backlit black and white display (will include original display if I can find it).
-Keybed stripped and cleaned - all keys have been washed and cleaned. One key has been repaired with epoxy and although it isn't the cleanest job, it will never break and isn't very noticable.
-Faders have 3D printed knobs (sorry about the colour; some photos don't have the fader caps on but they're included!)
-Relay cleaned - the audio relay on the output board has been cleaned and works great."
