Yamaha PM-180 Recap and PCB Trace Repairs

This one is now on the desk. The unit is pretty good shape, others some minor signs of liquid "ingestion" on the top panel. The unit looks stock, and I can see a few bubbled electrolytic in there.
 All and all a nice build, with tiny input transformers on the 6 mic/line ins, and two output transformers on the XLR outs.
The owner says the EQ is sounds great when it works. The EQ is interesting because its a passive tone stack with tantalum caps.
