This piano is not cosmetically perfect, which is why it is priced lower than any other Yamaha U1 in our store. This piano is perfect for someone who values saving money on a great piano over cosmetic perfection. If you are new to the world of pianos, the Yamaha U1 is the best-selling upright piano model in the world and has been for some time. Yamaha uprights in general, and the U1 model specifically, are in grand demand, in part because piano teachers helping a student to choose a first piano typically recommend the Yamaha U1 more than any other upright piano model. They combine high performance and an affordable price into one irresistible package. Luckily, we go out of our way to get as many as we can as often as we can. Just like every piano we sell, this piano sells with our 10-year all parts and labor warranty. What’s not to like?
