    Guess the Year #14 (musical instrument version)

    It's been a while since the last one and I think this forum could use a little 'fun' infusion.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    This is hard cause there's no people with bizarre clothes or decor to date it. I can't quite make out the all text either, which would help. I'll guess 1975.

    Even though I can't read any of the text in that ad (do you have a higher-resolution image of it?), I'll guess 1971. Popcorn by Hot Butter (done on a Moog synthesizer) came out about then.

    1973 - The Moog 808 I know came out after the Korg and was much smaller (about half the size). That thing is a monster... must have vacuum tubes and huge transistors. Say hello to the birth of electronica.

    1977! The PS 3300 allowed sampling and gliding. What a machine!

    Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner! The ad originally ran in 1977.
    Mtn Woman has the honor of posting GTY#15 if she wishes.

    Due to my work schedule, I'll have to pass on that honor. But thanks for the offer.
