Yamaha CS40M SN 1305

via this auction

"Look at that condition! It's like when it left the assembly line in Japan 1979!

Only a few minor imperfections on those wooden ends, but other than that is unbelievable that this synth is 40+ years old. New backup batteries. Comes with really unique vintage items like original tag from the music store it was originally sold in(!), original vintage user and patch manual, original sound demo/patch data cassette and more! The modulation possibilities and the character of the filter, especially the Bandpass are all favorites of mine. Programmable and all the in and out possibilities, makes the CS40M a great machine in a modular system too. The CS40M is h e a v y . They way that the value of CS80, 60 and 50 has exploded, it's just a question of a short time before the CS40M will bring at least JP6 prices."
