I got mine in Israel. Had to talk to local dealer - and they only asked for the serial number of the Keyboard (and did not care that I did not even bought the keyboard directly from them). Took 2 weeks to get shipped to the store and I had to get them from there.

+1 to Roland for not making a fuzz about this and just shipping against a serial number (and patch v2. I do understand it's not trivial).
-1 to the local dealer - the overlays were mounted (not glued) into a display unit.

What's the advantage of the Overlays? Is it just to protect the surface?

They are matt so don't reflect e.g. music stand lights and a much better contrast to read. Also cover the scratches!

I once cleaned the surface with a wrong cloth and now the surface is scratched. As I see this - this is a build defect, and I see these overlays as a "recall" as we see in cars. They found a defect in the equipment, and are fixing it for all customers.
