Hi Guys can anyone tell me if this will be an addition i heard that it has the fantom X engine so slightly different to the G .

I can have that Juno for 450 euro or less , 2 months old .

What do you think ?

Not that I have much experience with either of those but from what I have read, the Juno-G has a slightly cut back implementation of the Fantom X synth engine but shares many of it's sounds. I would expect many or all of those sounds to be in the Fantom G.

Personally speaking, if I had a Fantom G I wouldn't bother with the Juno but if you feel you can make use of it, it may be worth it... You could always sell it in a couple of months if you didn't like it.

I don't really understand why you'd want a Juno-G if you already have a Fantom G, unless it would be for gigging and you don't want to lug that 88-key monster around.
