ive got an ob8 with a midi retrofit and b5, no pg 2 graphics though, you
have to work with the manual. i bought the archive sound bushings because
its a pratt reed keyboard.. i couldnt install them though, because a screw
was stripped. i paid a tech to drill it out (45 bucks!) and replace the
screw. i do not have time to mess with it though.. im going into surgery

i paid 850 for this thing a couple months ago, 50 for the bushings, 45 for
this evil screw..

ill sell it for 750 OBO with the archive sound kit. or an interesting trade
± cash.
