1981 Korg Mono/Poly (monopoly) analog synthesizer. 4-oscillator monophonic/4 note paraphonic (meaning polyphonic but with shared filter and volume articulation by all notes).

Original condition, no mods added (and so, no MIDI but it takes Gate/CV input and MIDI kits are available for about $300). 100% working. No issues at all. Recently serviced and cleaned, inside and out. All pots cleaned with DeOxit F-5 Faderlube. Keyboard was completely disassembled and all contacts cleaned with 99% isopropyl alcohol. One pot has been replaced (the bend intensity knob) and two keys have been replaced - all replacement parts from Syntaur.com. There is a *very* slight dent remaining in the front panel but can only be seen from just the right angle and lighting (see photos). *No* other changes have been made - ain't broke, don't fix! Even the original factory calibration is still set. Absolutely no hum, knob glitches or other issues.

This has spent the last 35 years in the bottom of my friend's mom's closet (hence the dent and damaged pot) so has virtually no fading/yellowing from exposure to light. (The replacement keys can't be differentiated from the originals.) Cosmetically 9/10.

I'm downtown in the Liberty Village (King and Dufferin) area. If you're serious, come take it for a test drive.

This is it (note that this is a playlist with several Mono/Poly videos, cued up to the first one):

Price is now firm. Might consider partial trades for computer displays >23", MIDI keyboard controllers >= 61 keys or 88 key hammer-action controllers/stage pianos. Nitro-lacquered electric guitars. Epiphone Casino. Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail. Boss HM-2. Behringer classic synth clones. Warthog or similar HOTAS. 1080 Ti or > graphics card.
