Tokyo, Japan
 Yamaha C3, seasoned for Japan, in black was listpriced JPY1,150,000. in Japan in 1987.
An average exchange rate in 1987 was JPY138 to a USD, meaning the cheapest version of C3 was USD8,333. in 1987. So, I would say the C3 satin mahogany with ivoy keys must be sold at more(e.g., 25-50%) than USD8,333 in Japan in 1987.
