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 cloudy patches 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 a 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?
