I'm pretty sure he would be willing to. He has posted all about it with pictures...
Well never hurts to ask I suppose :)

Give google the string {Keyboard Corner Musicplayer Forums "escaperocks"} without brackets and it finds some nice threads easily. That fellow has done some pretty good work actually.

Thanks for the information.

I agree. I would have preferred a white one. But then I had a lot of people tell me that the finish would likely yellow over time. So maybe it's a good thing I got a black one.
I have a white XF7 in use since a couple of years, and it’s still pure white like it was when I bought it. I have either covered it when staying in the rehearsal room or kept in a flight case, maybe that’s why .... 8)

Hi Hervshahn, welcome to yamahamusicians.com :)

I think given Yamaha's reputation for build quality it is very unlikely they would have painted what was then their flagship keyboard with a finish that would yellow over time. I have not come across anyone saying the finish on their white XF has faded or yellowed in any way so not sure where that rumour started.

Hi Saul,

thanks a lot for the welcome :)

Yes I also think that it would be very surprising if the color would change. I just can’t tell what would happen if it’s left open in the sunlight for months since mine is always covered to be protected against dust
