First you get a laptop; then you go online and order an MP-11SE.

Problem solved! You’re welcome! wink

He was just being playful, and it was funny.

You should contact Kawai USA or the closest support center - depending on where you live - and request the pertinent pages of the technical manual. Kawai USA was kind enough to send me the disassembly instructions for my ES8 when my wife accidentally damaged it. Kawai's support is good like that. They even gave me tips on how to fix it without having to buy new parts. I've always gotten very personal technical support whenever I've contacted Kawai USA.

God Bless,
David

Undo certain screws underneath, then the top can be lifted open. (I think it has a hinge on the rear)

+1 to David B, contact Kawai and ask them to send you the instructions. Shouldn't be a problem for an old unit like that. It's worth having, because there are certain steps to disassembly that you would never know without them (e.g., for the MP11 they recommend sliding a sheet of paper between the keyslip and cheekblocks so the wood doesn't get scratched by the metal frame as you lift it up).
