Some pics of the inside.

"Very rare, 4 digit serial number (8640) Rocky Mountain Instruments 368x. This is a chance to own a never-been-emulated electric piano just like one Ray Manzerek played with the doors. While not yet as famous as other keyboards from the era like the fender Rhodes it Vox continental, the RMI was nearly as prolific featuring in everything from country rock ballads with Steve Earles band to Broadway being one of Sondheims own early electric piano choices.

This example is in fully working order, though showing signs of corrosion around the leg bases and some key posts. there is general wear and tear as to be found on a previous session instrument And a few keys seem slightly out of tune, though this reduces with proper warm up time."
