Oh, why am I selling this? Yeah, I bought a CS-15, and I love that too, but this thing is such a little beast. People come up after shows and ask what is that, wow!?! I used it on the first Strange Monsters album De-story All, which you can hear on bandcamp. And yeah, I used a soft-synth for the CS80 bits, but there's nothing like the circuit. But I am buried in circuits, so here you go, love this thing. 

I bought it used, but it was in great shape then, and I've taken care of it every time it left the studio.

Also, if you're looking for a great, non-insanely-priced stringer, check out my Yamaha SK-15.
