That wood looks nice. If you are going to stain it rather than paint it; use a chemical peel to avoid having really black / dark grain lines caused by the spray paint. You did a great job on the keys! To reduce the amount of the keys getting sanded down you can try wet sanding. It's not normally used in this way but it wouldn't hurt and it will make the polish coat go on more evenly. Keep up the good work, Old instruments deserve proper treatment and I'm glad you're keeping these alive and well.

I will paint it black. It's not solid wood and doesn't look too nice in daylight the way it does now.

I have polished the last keys on Sunday and I reassembled the keys on Tuesday night after having cleaned the contacts. The next morning my older son was astonished that the keyboard looks like new now. :D You have to take a close look to see that there has been wear and tear and burn marks.

Yesterday I ordered a few parts to fix the faulty switches. I also managed to purchase a switch cap for a Roland TR-707 (at syntaur.com) that seems to fit without problems; it will only look a bit different.
