This Yamaha TX81Z FM tone generator is in good working condition. It has some case scratches mostly on the top and left side of the face. There are some darker spots on the face below the data entry buttons and above the display. The display has some minor scratches but is still easy to read when it is lit up. It still has the algorithm pull out card. The power button is a little crooked but works great.
