Hello,

I just picked up a JX3P. Aside from a dead key it functions as needed but it looks like it survived a nuclear explosion. The worst of it is the top panel. Do any of you know where to find a replacement Top Panel?

Thanks :D

(1) keep posting on Facebook - Synth Freaks, etc.

(2) not cheap, but AUDIOCUSTOM.pl does a D&%^ good job of repainting and re lettering synth panels. Shipping to Poland should be reasonable if you just sent the metal panel. They are a good bit cheaper than places in the US.

Thanks for the reply. I think I had the rare luck of getting a diamond in disguise. The exterior looked terrible but the interior looked like it was 1983 still. Hardly any dust and no wear and tear on any of the parts after I cleaned up the keybed contacts and buttons and it worked like it was 1983 too. I think I got that one synth someone brought, never played and chucked into storage only to be found years later. :lol: The top panel is the only piece that tells the story of how long it's been sitting around but I'm grateful I didn't pay too much for it and got a great keyboard.
