(Preface: I did the video and a photo with it on a stand made for the K3 I have.  The cross supports we have are too wide.  I can supply dimensions/photos if someone wants to try to fabricate a stand like the stock one but we dont' have the parts here to sell.  ALSO one of the biggest cosmetic issues were the scrapes on the black metal behind keys/under drawbars... in re-cleaning contacts for an interested buyer who balked I went ahead and did nice auto paint on that panel after smoothing!  ) 

A great collector showpiece rarity with the massive sides and unique design.  I've heard rumor another tech has seen one of these but no firm sighting of one anywhere that I can find aside from this unit sourced from the Chicago music store in Tucson about a decade ago.  I finally got around to repairing it and documenting all I had time to document.  Circuitry and the drawbars are very similar to those used in Farfisa VIP345 (see my other listing for one of those!)  except the tips are a bit more contoured in design.  Only 3 original tips came with the unit and I had to swap all the other parts from a scrap vip345 we happen to have.   It's 100% functional and cosmetically what you would expect of a 1970 relic with a galvanized sheet metal top :-).    Lots of scuffs but basically this tank keeps rolling after some TLC.  I replaced all the high esr measuring capacitors and it sounds exactly like it should I believe at this point.  A volume pedal is easy to add on.  I would use a 24V lamp as the open circuit 40V should go down to about that just like the Farfisa probably when it's loaded.   I have parts we could fabricate a pedal with here.

  Obviously the design team was the same on these units.  Vibrato circuit, bass 'attack' (really more like a decay ....whatever...same thing they call it on the farfisa) and power supply have pretty much the same design.

International buyers please contact to negotiate shipping method/payment.  I will pack with plenty of end support so nothing gets crashed in any normal incident.  I list 'as is' only because I want to dictate best resolution if any problem arises.  I will see to it that I pay for local service if possible if any issue arises not in description as always.
