"I got this KeyTar from a guy locally. He told me it was purchased as a gift years ago and was never given to the individual. As you can see from the pictures it is extremely clean and I can't find a scratch on it. The strap has not even been opened!! The only thing I didn't see in the box is a power supply. I am not sure if it even came with one. I put in batteries to make sure it would turn on and it did no problem. The unit will not ship with batteries." eBay Link
"BACK TO THE 80's! Awesome vintage Yamaha Keytar that powers up (unit was tested on batteries AND on a universal power supply) and runs perfectly. I am the original and only owner. I am including a power supply that was tested and runs the unit.
The auction includes a CUSTOM made fitted case. Cases were not made for these units. I actually had a custom padded case made for this synth so it would transport safely. One "over shoulder strap" has been torn from the seam, but it can be repaired easily or removed...I leave that choice up to you. The other two handles used for carrying it by your side are in perfect shape." eBay Link

" Yamaha SH 200 FM Synthesizer incl. diverser "Keyboardfunktionen" - wunderbar zum umhängen und auf der Bühne zu posen. Über MIDI - Out kann jeder andere Synthesizer angeschlossen werden. Das Gerät kommt incl. Gurt und den passenden Akkus, allerdings ohne das (standard) Steckernetzteil. Für sein Alter in einem (wie ich meine) guten Zustand, funktioniert, aber wie üblich: Das ist ein Privatverkauf, also keine Garantie und keine Rückgabe " eBay Link

"Yamaha SHS-10 Keyboard Guitar Keytar w. power supply. Works great. Battery connections look perfect but did not have batteries to test. All keys work. Kept the volume fairly high for testing, but that could be the old operator not the keyboard. Cleaned it up a bit but may need more wiping down." eBay Link
