This model is one of Yamaha’s “super” uprights, an upgraded version of the legendary U3. With its thundering bass, singing treble, and super-sensitive keyboard, this high-performance upright will serve your student’s needs with room to spare, but was built to serve the musical demands of much more advanced pianists as well. Full size Yamaha uprights like this are requested by more teachers shopping for/with their students than all other pianos combined. This piano is in mint condition inside and out. Its modern equivalent, the model YUS3 with a polished ebony cabinet sells new for over $18K. With pianos like this available at our shop, all with our 10-year warranty and famous lifetime upgrade guarantee, there’s no reason to fork over heart attack inducing quantities of your hard earned money to buy an overpriced new piano.
