Stop playing "Flight of the Bumblebee"

Owners of the Casio CTK-710 keyboard (shown above) should be warned, the instrument can catch fire (Fire! Fire!). So Casio has issued a recall voluntary.

Voluntary? Well, I guess some people might want the potential pyrotechnics to add to their 37-minute, jammin' cover of "Riders on the Storm."

Apparently, the keyboard has overheated, resulting in a "smoke and/or fire hazard." Here are the details about what serial numbers are affected and what to do with your keyboard (starting with: For God's sake, turn it off and unplug it).

Actually, I think Jerry Lee Lewis has had this same problem with his acoustic pianos.
