Vintage Farfisa Leader: need your help!

Hey everyone, I hope this is the right place to post this, but here goes anyway.

I just bought an old Farfisa Leader Organ and everything works great except after playing for a little while all the E notes begin to become distorted and dissonant. This occurs on the upper keyboard, bass, and lower. Each note has it's own module (after exploring the back) so I assume the module may be going bad? It goes in and out and sometimes fixes itself without me doing anything. Turning it off and back on doesn't seem to do anything either. I plan on taking to to a repair shop but would like to get some people's advice before I take it anywhere.

And if you are in Nashville and own a repair shop, well you just let me know.

Thanks everyone!

P.S. Enclosed is a picture of the organ if that helps at all.

The problem is most likely in the master oscillator for E.

One of my guys loves the Farfisa stuff, we get big ol' boxes here every other week for him...

I'll ask him to chime in tomorrow.
