This outstanding upright was Kawai’s equivalent model to Yamaha’s famous U3. Yamaha and Kawai have been competing in the same city of Hamamatsu, Japan for 90 years and have never been able to put each other out of business, which speaks to their equality and individuality. This piano is in excellent condition inside and out and is covered by our 10-year warranty on all parts and labor, just like a brand new Kawai. Unlike new pianos, every piano we sell also carries our lifetime upgrade guarantee which allows you to trade-up for full purchase price credit as your needs and budget expand. If you’ve been looking for a mellow and refined vertical piano with a very responsive keyboard without breaking the bank, can you really afford to pass this one by? We think not! Of course, for the same money you could go out and buy a smaller, less refined new piano…but why would you want to?
