FS: x0xb0x personal builds, no part subs except yellow caps

Hello, I previous built and sold some x0xb0x here:

viewtopic.php?f=29&t=18412

I recently determined I had just enough parts stock to build 3 more boxes. These are not recent parts purchases and have no parts substitutions, except I used the yellow film caps instead of the OOP greenies. Otherwise, this is what you'll find inside:

Vintage 733AP transistors with high beta Q10, Q9, Q8
Reliable and accurate rare parts kits from Gaetano in AU
Built with the 6110
All DIPs socketed
All 1% resistors
Assembled/tested/tuned by me
4 button colors
Pac-Tac cases
Willzyx PCBs

Currently all loaded with OS 1.0.5.
Testing: All MIDI, all Audio ports, DIN SYNC, all features.
Non-rare parts kits sourced from reliable US vendors - Digikey, Mouser. PSUs from McMaster-Carr (US specification)

These builds match the original x0xb0x BOM and sound very good IMO. I can shoot a video of any unit with sound demo because I don't want you buying it unless you feel it sounds good.

I've built 3, and I think I'm either going to keep one or two. LEDs are diffuse Blue/Red/Green on the 3 units.

US$525 with PSU (red/green), blue +$10. I cannot price compete with the more recent parts-substitution builds, sorry. If you want one built this way, here it is, otherwise, no problem.

Didn't take a lot of photos during build, but here's the boxes and one shot of a PCB in process so you can see the components.
