Thanks Rod,
Turns out I already tackled this before your response, and had good luck. But for anyone else facing the same dilema, the QS8 is a little different. Take off the seven screws along the seam on the back, then take off the three screws on the bottom of each wooden side plate. The sides and the console section will come off together. The console section is attached by some ribbon connectors to the main circuit card mounted to the bottom chassis, you may have to disconnect the shortest one. Don't take off any of the screws on the bottom, as they hold the keyboard and the power supply to the chassis.
Not surprisingly, I guess, the thing is mostly empty space. I remember taking apart a Korg DW8000 some time ago (I bought it in '85), and as I remember, it had this huge circuit card which filled it up. Things change.
