Wow as well.

If that is indeed genuine (as it appears to be) you seem to have something super rare in your hand. Not even Wikipedia has it in their Ace Tone product list (=> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ace_Tone).
Perhaps even some kind of prototype?

I'd try and get in touch with Roland (the follow-up to Ace Tone, in a way) and see if they can shed some light on this.

In any case, don't sell it hastily. You might have a real gem and collector's item there, especially as it appears to be in good condition (at least optically; the electronics inside might need some (or even extensive) servicing after probably more than 45 years).

Holy s**t batman :o You have something truly rare there, it doesn't even come upon any image search. Those are possibly the only pictures on the internet! Ace Tone later became Roland. There's only a text entry in wikipedia under Ace Tone products as the SY-100. The only other two synths under Ace Tone being the PS-1000 which is much better known and the Multistring SY-5. If you're going to sell this think you could pretty much ask whatever you'd like :D
