The U1 is probably overpriced, but I'm positive the dealer would be willing to discount, if a serious offer were made.

And while it's true that to a Kawai lover, the K-3 would likely be a better choice than the KX-21, I think it's fair to say that to any Yamaha lover, a reasonable price on a pristine '86 U1 would make it more desirable than either Kawai.

I am not a piano expert, but some of these reponses crack me up. Of course the new Kawai is a better piano than the used Samick, but it costs over twice as much.

If someone offered me a used Hyundai Sonata or a new Honda Accord, I am taking the new Accord. Oh wait...there is the whole topic of money.

If this guy buys the Samick, and wants to get rid of it in 2 years, it will have value. All of that said, the $2500 is negotiable and probably drops to $2100. It is a fine piano (tech approved) for beginners and will give years of service before he sells it for $1400 to someone else.

Hi everyone.....the search is over and we had our new Kawai K2 delivered today. It's a real beauty. Thank you to all for your comments. I'm glad this sometimes frustrating (although very necessary) experience is over. We went well over budget but my kids love the piano so I hope it inspires them to play. I now know more than I ever thought possible about pianos(altho' I know it's just the tip of the iceberg).
