Some additional details from the comments:

On parts: "My best estimate is around $180 USD, ~70 of which was the Keystep that I used for the keyboard."

On design: "I built everything myself, but took inspiration from exsisting schematics. The filter is based on Mortiz Kleins vactrol VCF, the envelopes are based on Thomas Henrys 555 envelope and the VCOs are built around the AS3340 chip! The effects are the only part I didn't build myself, Search for 'dsp 100 reverb' on aliexpress!"

Homemade analog Synth-Guitar!

2:18 Ambient Lead
3:07 "Guitar" Lead
4:04 Walkthrough

"Fully analog, fully homemade guitar-synth
Built from scratch, based on a few different schematics aswell as a few own designs for some of the functions.
The pitch is controlled by two soft-pots tuned a 4th apart, just like a guitar.

The body is mostly made of stained plywood and the knobs are made of dowels that i cut and sanded to size!

The synth is accompanied by a couple of beats I made on my digitakt!

Hope you enjoy!"
