If you are new to the world of pianos, the Yamaha U1 is the best-selling and most teacher-recommended piano model ever made. It would be a mistake to think of this piano as “old”. This piano is a testament not only to Yamaha’s long tradition of making solid, good quality pianos but also to the longevity of pianos in general. Most pianos can easily achieve a human lifespan of 80-100 years before needing to be rebuilt or retired. This piano received a new set of tuning pins and all new wires, but is all otherwise original with internal parts in barely-used condition, including the original Yamaha hammers and action parts, which reveal barely any wear at all, epitomizing the classic adage, “It’s not the years, it’s the mileage”. The cabinet is still in amazingly fresh condition even compared to pianos decades newer. Yamaha U1 models are hard to keep in stock due largely to piano teachers recommending this model to their students more than any other vertical model. They combine high performance and an affordable price into one irresistible package. Like every piano we sell, this piano comes with our 10-year all parts and labor warranty, as well as our enormously popular lifetime upgrade guarantee.
