Focus on guitar, but I do play keyboard/piano. What would you like to know? Hunting for a good keyboard?

Looking for a full-size keyboard?

How much are you looking to spend and what kind of features do you want? I'd recommend getting a keyboard with weighted keys, especially if you've ever done much with piano. The weighted keys feel better are don't pinch like the unweighted plastic keys.

I'm a fan of Korg and they are often some of the most sophisticated when it comes to sampled sounds. I've also had experience with Kurzweil and Yamaha. The Yamaha's are not bad, but I think Kurzweil and Korg sound more realistic.

Some keyboards are designed more for performance while others interact with computer recording software better. Generally the Kurzweil and Korg stuff is very heavy duty, professional grade equipment. If you're just getting into it then it'd probably be best to go with a Yamaha or Roland full-size on the lower end. If you're doing work on a computer then the quality of the built-in synthesizer is less important because it just serves as a keyboard with the software usually providing the sampled sounds.

Whoa, somehow you accidentally sent your PM to me, and, dude, not appreciated.

No amount of money would get me to do that.

Now if a nice looking lady wanted me to do something to her while playing that BHC theme, I'd do that for free.
