Roland JD-800 Minus Keys

via this auction

"This JD-800 is in rough shape. There's no key bed, so it can only be used as a MIDI module. The left end cap was smashed, and the whole thing got sprayed by some sort of liquid that stained the plastic and etched the aluminum. However, it functions OK. It has been completely re-switched, and the faders have been cleaned. The internal circuit boards are in good shape. Could be parted out or repaired, though end caps and key beds are very hard to find these days. The bottom interior has had rust removed and painted with clear acrylic paint to prevent further corrosion. Because of the state of the instrument it is sold As-Is."
