Oh, OK, never mind then. I just assumed it was local because that's what I thought I read in a previous post. Wow, so did you have to fly or drive all the way there to check out the piano with a tech, or hire a local tech for the inspection and tuning?

What's the difference between the GB1 and the GB1K anyway? Just curious...

As I understand it, GB1K is the latest model and is 5'. The GB1 is 4'11". I have a GB1 and absolutely love it. I did play U1, U3, YUS5, GC1s, C1s and C3s. The piano I bought has a wonderful action and I fell in love. It fits nicely in the living room and sounds beautiful there. Most Japanese and European piano makers are charging higher prices now because the value of the dollar has fallen in relation to the yen or the euro. If you shop for a piano teacher now, you might be able to have them check out your choices before you buy, or you can do what's been suggested and have a registered piano tech check it out for you.

Good Luck and Happy Shopping!
