The current keyboard i use has keys that are .5 inches shorter than my acoustic standard upright piano but never advertised it being different from standard. I am getting an ES110 soon and I want to make sure that the keys are the same length as my upright piano.

When I first read the title of this thread "can you please measure the length of your ..." I thought I was viewing one of those "other" web sites. smile

FWIW I have really long fingers and didn't notice a problem at the store.I'm 6'6".

I've been waiting weeks for an ES110 and now it's the end of July, but I doubt even that will hold true.

I just bought a Numa Compact 2x; they keys are shorter (no tape measure handy right now), but it's OK and not an issue. Keys are the same width, I assume Kawai's are too.
