"This is an extremely rare Moog collaboration with Cordovox. When I purchased this beast it was in rough shape so I restored most of the outer shell and got most of the internals working the way they should. This includes

1. Exterior UV treated to restore the original "white" appearance.
2. Fixed various wiring miss connections within the circuitry.
3. Reconnected trouble spots that needed to be resoldered.
4. Repaired sliders that were no longer operational.

This is about as far as I got on the restoration. There are however some issues with the Moog side of things. These include.

1. Pitch on particular keys don't always work perfectly. (I speculate that this is due to bad key contacts, which should be an easy fix)
2. Some presets are not fully operational.
3. In manual mode not all parameters work perfectly.
4. Some Moog sliders don't have caps

This was a really fun restoration project, the Moog side has a few issues as noted above but the organ side of things is truly amazing! All together this Synth/Organ sounds great and is a true one of a kind.

I had to part with this because its taking up too much space and I would like my living room back ;)"
