In our world of used pianos, Japanese vertical models (Kawai or Yamaha) between 48 & 52-inches tall (“full uprights”) that sell for over $4,000 are plentiful staples of our inventory. Smaller Yamaha or Kawai verticals between 44 & 47-inches tall (“studio uprights”) priced under $4,000 are a tiny minority of our upright piano inventory. Such pianos join our inventory only a few times per year and are normally snapped up as fast as we can get them on our website. Therefore, this Kawai studio upright is a wonderful and welcome addition to our inventory. At this price, we don’t expect it to be here very long. The cabinet is very clean, but it’s not cosmetically perfect, with a smattering of tiny blemishes that would be impossible to remove without complete refinishing. Inside, where it really matters, the original parts are in excellent condition with decades of useful life ahead of them. Just like every piano we sell, this piano includes our 10-year warranty on all parts and labor and lifetime upgrade guarantee. Why buy new?
