NAMM 2014 saw the introduction of the Classic MS20 Synth in kit form, at least a sort of flat-pack, Ikea type kit - you won't be soldering all that much (at all, actually). We're talking a full replica of the original at full size with bolted pots and jack points, so its a solid unit.

Additionally you get both flavours of filter - the original and the modified version introduced during later production - you can no doubt figure out (or someone will) how to mod a switch to choose from the outside. The new kit also comes with a USB/MIDI interface built in but aside from that its a dead ringer.

There are only going to be 1000 of these, so Korg better stop making these videos or they'll run out. Mind you I don't care, the more they keep for themselves, the better - it means that my original might keep its value.

I digress - in this video, original MS20 designers Mr. Fumio Mieda -Left  Mr. Hiroaki Nishijima - right unbox the new Kit and put it together.

If you want one of these, your gonna have to get on the list, its going to set you back around $1400.

It will be available end of March and you will need to preorder it via your retailer of choice.
