Bad case of GAS here, two strikes in two weeks.... first bought a Yamaha FS720 cause I needed a better acoustic, fantastic sounding guitar for less than AUD 400, the neck's a little thin, but I'll get used to it; went to the local guitar shop to buy a stand for it & came out with a J&D 5 string acoustic bass (Like the picture but all black) - this one's a monster - sounds great acoustically, great fun to play. The electronics aren't so good, I suspect they've jammed in a cheap guitar preamp & tuner, the tuner doesn't really work on the low strings, & it didn't sound that great through an amp, but I didn't play with the controls much. But pretty good value for AUD 320.

Here's (one of) my latest acquisition(s):
Click the image to open in full size.
It's a "Howard Classical Series by Baldwin." Saw it at the thrift store around April for $300, and by June it was $22 and I figure it's worth that for the parts. The worst part is it weighs just about as much as an upright piano, though 90 percent of that is the wooden case.

This thing uses '80's (70's?) technology, all thru-hole parts (there's a plaque on the side where it was installed in a local chapel in 1995, dunno if it was new or used then). It's got five boards about 10" square, three apparently for tone generation, each with four 40-pin chips and four 28-pin EPROMs as well as many smaller chips. All chips are in cheap DIP sockets - there's no machine-pin sockets to be seen. Only one keyboard made sound when I got it, and most of the stop buttons didn't work. I've taken it apart, reseated EVERY chip and connector, sprayed contact cleaner into the pots, and have gotten it mostly working. It has a dead battery that apparently holds user presets in RAM - when I press one of those, everything locks up, but I can "write" to one and then recall it as long as I don't power down.. "Standard" presets mostly work. By the way it acts (some stop buttons activate other stops or the tuning, which is a 6-position rotary switch from three steps down to two steps up, and these are all on the front panel circuit boards), I'm guessing one or more of the CMOS logic chips are bad. It would be cheap enough to shotgun them, but not sure if I want to try to get everything to work. Most connectors are MOLEX .1" 2x10 to 2x16 except for three cables each with 40-pin DIP headers (!), and the "improvement" in function from just taking it apart and putting it back together suggests contact reliability problems, the kind of thing you don't want deal with on something with this many connectors. A feature or two that worked a week ago doesn't work now.

I'm about halfway ready to scrap it for parts and maybe make a roll top desk out of the cabinet, even though I have no use for a roll top desk.
