help ID'ing a synth? :D

i just can't find which one it is.



the yamaha that the lead singer is playing.

my first thoughts were something CS. but looking through the VSE archives all of the CS series with wooden side panels have controls to the left of the keyboard. and this one just has a keyboard all the way across the body of the synth.

i don't really need to know for any reason in particular... its just annoying me that i can't figure it out :D

See the controls? I think they're sliders. They seem to be fairly concentrated at the (player's) right - see 0:22.

It's a Yamaha SK-15 stringer. It's not a 10, not with the stuff over at the right - and it's only 4 octaves, which means it can't be a 20 or higher.

Here's a link to some flickr pics.

EDIT: y'all replied while I was typing! Typical.
