I have super rare Yamaha SK-30. This is my baby, and something I spent a lot of time trying to find.  And a fair amount of time and money restoring it to perfect working condition. It is your best bet if you are jonzing for the CS-80 sound. It is a string, organ, polysynth, AND monosynth combined. It has built in Ensemble and Tremelo and a really cool vibrato, so you can get all your favorite vintage tones right out of the box.It has been professionally restored, and all keys, sliders, pots, etc are in great condition.  No scratchy pots when adjusting parameters and the preset tones as well as FX buttons engage quickly. Everything works. All slider caps and switches are present.  I can tell you from experience it is rare to have everything working.  Usually the vibrato or ensemble fx are funky, and can't be repaired without sourcing ultra rare bucket brigade chips.  The tremolo is really cool and speeds up and slows down like a real leslie.  I can't say enough good things about the tone of this beast.  It is a 70's dream machine.  I bought it mainly for the string and polysynth, but I was soon blown away at the quality of the mono synth.  And the organ was a real surprise.  Really legit sounding and the drawbars let you dial in a wide spectrum of tones.  Layer everything together at once, and you have the biggest sounding synth section you've ever heard.It is in good condition for its age, but has some typical scratches and roughed up wood edges as you might expect from a keyboard that is nearly 40 years old. But it will likely last another 40 years.  If you have any questions, please email me and I'll be happy to talk with you about it.This keyboard is 50 pounds and with packaging it will be close to 60.  It will be expensive to ship.  Just having it professionally boxed, I was quoted up to $200.  But I will take care of the packaging fees and charge only actual shipping costs.FREE SHIPPING WITH BUY IT NOW!!
