Up for sale is a Kurzweil Forte 88. The synth engine on this thing is amazing. The bread-and-butter keyboard sounds are great. The sequencer is very useful. The control abilities are phenomenal. PLUS...with the latest OS update you can load native DX7 FM files and play them direct - with NO MODIFICATIONS! So you have tens of thousands of files all over the internet you can download into this beast.

Everything works perfectly. This stage piano / synth / workstation was very well cared for. There is very minor wear and tear (see the photos).

Hard shell case included. The case has carried two keyboards (the previous being a Kurtz PC3) and it is tough but it does the job.
