Microwave XT Desktop Paint Question

I am dealing with a seller that is stating this module was sold like this when it was new. I don’t believe him. I do not recall Waldorf offering a synth that looked worn down like this. I just need someone to confirm this is truly some sort of damage to the surface.

I've never seen a "rust edition" XT, ever. I've seen orange and black (phoenix edition) in the last 20yrs of Waldorf watching on ebay and other 2nd hand markets. I have no idea how the owner managed to get the text to stay good, but you can see it's been in a rack while the paint was removed; the original orange finish is left where the nuts were holding it in place. There are other places where they have failed to remove all the paint and the original finish is still visible. I'd not buy it even if they have a good price on it based on the fact they are trying to deceive you.

EDIT: I could be wrong, maybe Till will pop by and be able to give some insight, but I'm pretty sure there was never a "rust edition" sold in stores.

Thanks for your insight. I’m almost certain the seller is lying.

There were two slightly different orange colours and the black ones. I never ever heard, read or saw any Waldorf product in this colour/texture. And I am into Waldorf since 1995.

Hi Pinhole_Sunrise,
the original surface of the MWXT called Nextel.
www.nextel-coating.com/nextel/default.asp?lng=eng

This is a kind of surface that causes trouble after many years and then, in the worst case scenario, can looks like your photos.

There was never ever a XT with this surface original from Waldorf!!!
