That's worse than my Kawai K1. I didn't take a photo, but I got it cheap (£10.50) because someone had dropped a DX27 on it. Damaged case and some smashed keys. Played perfectly over MIDI even in that state, and now looks a lot better.

I was thinking yesterday, if the world really does end when the Mayan Calendar ends, maybe it's some consolation to think that DX7s will probably still be playable.

*If* the electricity supplier didn't go up in smoke during that cataclysm.

It's all far worse; forget about computers 'n synths. The things that survive will be accordions! :?

Where did you find the pic? Is Chuck Norris selling his synth on Ebay?

I can't stop looking at that Indigo. It's like a Dali painting.

I've been lucky but then, I don't gig or anything like that so my risk is somewhat less.
