Maybe the Elka Synthex:

Image

Because before I knew much about old synths while buying an Oddy mkII next to nothing, they thought it didn't work at the shop, a hot babe there told me it was a "nice buy" and that she had an Elka Synthex like I should of known what that was at the time. Felt like a gimp for not knowing, but now I do, and now I will probably always want one.

OK, then the Synton Syrinx:

Image

Because there arn't many and I've always wanted to try that diamond shaped plate thing on it.

OB-Xa.

Sexiness doesn't necessarily imply classiness.

I don't know about sexiness, but personally I feel the Korg Wavestation is the most deceptive from an aesthetic standpoint. It looks so bland, soulless, and uninspiring, but can create some of the most mindbending soundscapes imagineable.

No nonsense. Just black and white and silver. Super cool and bad a*s.
Also, MS-20, Pro-One, RSF Kobol (I love the big knobs).

White Voyagers are admittedly some of the most beautiful synths out there.
