  1. That centennial edition has got to be the ugliest thing I've ever seen? Silver and gold paint? Glow-in-the-dark keys? It's like a 6-year-old's idea of "fancy."

  2. Yamaha knows you hate yourself for buying one for the glow in the dark keys Robbie. You'll get over it man.

  3. These remind me what life was like before the internet. I know these exact Aftertouch (and the recent late 80s Roland User Group auction) issues very, very well. Memories.

  4. Coolness. That is really neat to see a Yamaha QX-3/MSS1 issue. I have a QX-3 and still use it to this day, it works perfectly. I also have a Yamaha QX-1, is a huge sequencer with 8 MIDI outs and a big 5 1/4 floppy drive. Two awesome machines.
