Wow, I like the looks of that Rhodes spookyman. Love that heavy gold metal flake. You did a great job. It's very retro, like it came through a time warp right outta 1973, lol. I hope the SH-1000 turns out that nice . Here's what I've done so far: Stripped her down, cleaned all switches, contacts et...

That Juno looks great. I like the white look. I get what you're saying, I basically have a clean slate to work with. I could do almost anything to this synth and it would look better.

First Project Synth, SH-1000

I bought the Ratty Roland SH-1000 for $65 off eBay last week. It arrived very poorly packaged. ( Rule #1, never pack 'any' synth in foam peanuts, it causes damage, and leaves a mess.)
