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 grace our inventory only a few times per year and are eagerly 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 not cosmetically perfect, with a smattering of blemishes that would be impossible to remove without complete refinishing, (hence the lower than usual price for this model) but inside, where it really matters, it’s in excellent condition with decades of useful life ahead of it. It carries our standard 10-year warranty on all parts and labor and lifetime upgrade guarantee. Of course, for the same money you could buy a smaller and less capable new Kawai upright piano…but why on Earth would you want to?
