Rampant internet speculation aside, I'd like to know about changes in the Rogue over its lifetime. Mine has an RCA 150 in place of the CA3080 that the schematic shows, and I haven't found a datasheet for it yet, or any info at all actually. I've also read there are differences in the PCB layout, but don't know how true that is (again, the internet is a wonderful place). If anybody actually knows anything useful, I'd be glad to hear it.

The biggest difference I've noticed is that the MG-1 is a bit more quirky sounding than the Rogue.

The polyphonic organ section really does sound neat (at least to me) and hey, you can say you have a polyphonic Moog.

I believe it's also a bit cheaper than the Rogue on eBay, so that may be something to consider.
