"Vintage Yamaha SHS-10R Midi keyboard for parts or repair. It does power on but may not function properly. I noticed that the "0" button is not working so you cannot use any of the voice/style presets 01-04, 10, 20, 30, or 40. This is probably an easy fix. I couldn't figure out how to record and playback so there may be a problem with that also (or i just don't know what I'm doing). I believe all other functions are working properly. It's in pretty good shape cosmetically with just a few scuffs and scratches. There is some tape residue on the back. Battery compartment is clean and the cover is in good shape. No strap, manual, or box." eBay Link
"The keytar keyboard has been tested with a universal AC adapter (not included). All of the keys work (even the two missing ones). The built in speaker, power switch, volume and pitch bend also work. I tried most of the buttons, but not every single combination.
Please look closely at the pictures provided to judge the condition of the keyboard. It will be sold for parts and/or repair." eBay Link
"This auction is for one vintage 1987 Yamaha SHS-10 Keytar FM Digital Keyboard with MIDI. This keyboard has been in my collection for years and I'm in the process of thinning it out. The keyboard works. Cosmetically, the keyboard has scratches and wear but still looks nice (see pictures). The Fender guitar strap in the pictures is included in this auction." eBay Link

"Used Yamaha Keyboard Keytar SHS-10! Tested and working (external midi not tested) ! The keyboard is missing the battery cover but includes the OEM Yamaha power supply! There is a small scuff by the Yamaha logo (see picture) No reserve! " eBay Link
Has some issues with the programming of certain voices. Sometimes buttons will not activate when pressed (but not consistently). Could probably use a good refurbishing of the circuitry and cleaning to bring it back to its original glory." eBay Link

The keytar can be played using a variety of pedals in conjunction with a sound module or effects unit so you don't have to use the buttons to add effects to your playing. MIDI is fully operational as is the pitch bend wheel and all other control buttons.
Excellent additional instrument to a full group/band or to play just for fun.
