Moving back to the original topic - I stand corrected, the modules with brown jacks read 2720 on the boards. Still makes me wonder why those have brown jacks like the original button keyboard version. Early editions perhaps? Was there a time where Paia continued to use brown jacks for the 2720, then switched to the red ones? If so, then those with brown jacks must be somewhat rare. Are there even any modules that exist with 2700 printed on their circuit boards?

"Still makes me wonder why those have brown jacks like the original button keyboard version"

The PAIA button keyboard synth that I built from a kit in the mid/late 70's has red jacks, not brown.

Over the years I have seen a few pics of modules with pin jacks that are brown, you are not seeing things. Perhaps the supplier did not have enough red jacks and supplied brown ones, or it could simply be a mistake on the supplier's part. I haven't seen any information related to brown jacks, or to significance of jack color as to model or rarity.

FYI, the circuit boards in my synth use the "2720-" legend (not 2700).

Rather than looking at the button controller synth and the organ keyboard synth as two different models, it is more like the same auto but with a choice of a V-4 or V-6 engine option.

Hmm I too wonder if there was a period where they simply ran out of the red jacks or ordered or received the wrong kind and simply added them to the next run of kits instead of returning them thus doing a limited run of accidental "special edition" kits? I wonder how rare they are and how much more I could charge for them?

They are not like a stamp printed upside down. I don't think those brown tip jacks matter at all.
