Congratulations. You have succeeded in making me deposit Quaker oatmeal on myself due to a mirthful reaction to your post. #-o

To whom shall I address the cleaning bill?

Jesus Christ, this looks more like a nuclear reactor control station than like a synth!

You are in for a world of pain if anything breaks down...right?

Anywho, you need to demo the h**l out of it should you buy it. Just for kicks how much is the seller asking for?

oh my god... that looks amazing.

Enough with the silly questions: how much, does it work, etc... Just buy the freaking thing!!! There can't be more than like, um, 5 of them in existence! :lol:

definitely the exact same picture on that website, which means it's probably a scam

one of those crappy old things???

to each his own. if it's a good price buy it.

but beware... you'll never get those di-lithium intra-modulators to stay in tune, not to mention the all-to-common problem with the cast-iron gedonkulator bar cracking during a live performance.

Lol! It is April fool's day;)
Well, this "thing" is not on craigslist but it is located at the music museum of Prague/Czech republic.
The photo was taken by a Greek fellow during his visit at the museum , hence the Greek site that was reported earlier.
I spent many hours searching information about this but I could not find anything.

What is worth mentioning is the word "TESLA" written in each oscillator module.
Just zoom in and check it out :D
