No Prophet 5 there, that I know of from Benny Andersson.
It is the GX-1 he got when visiting Yamaha's headquarters at Japan in 1978, probably the latest one produced, including all the revisions. He had been introduced to it by John Paul Jones when Led Zep went to record "In Through the Out Door" to Polar Studios just a few months prior that. (or he got wind of its sound while bypassing). It seems no wised up reporter has asked about this yet.

Anyway as this thread also refers to timbre:

No better Synth timbre than what I've ever heard (recorded, I wasn't there then) is from his chosen sounds on that GX-1 and the Wembley Arena room reverb at 79.

Same location Benny and their second keyboardist and on electric pianos as well. Not sure which of both tunes they enjoyed playing their keys the most...
