So now there will be a "GX" series to replace the RX series. They are really nice.

Have you played them? Can you tell us how they sound and what the touch is like?

Thank you for the photos. The Shigeru with the fancy finish looks fabulous.

Kind regards,

Robert.

They debuted the "Harlequin" S.Kawai in 2011. Back then, they used a red veneer on the inner rim that was less of a contrast than the quilted maple. I can't remember, but that may have been quilted maple stained red or perhaps something similar.

I see Kawai's point in calling it harlequin..

I'm going to hold out for Tartan plaid or houndstooth.

Weren't there several signs inside their booth asking people not to take photos?

I didn't see any signs banning photos. If there were signs saying that ......I would probably have pictures of that too. I am a huge Kawai fan. Nobody asked me to stop. I wasn't the only one. Are the Kawai police after me? wink

From your posts here I figured you were considerably overweight.

Under these circumstances, I think you should stay away from the Harlequin look. Go with vertical candy stripes or a dark solid color, maybe black or brown.

Turnadot you're back! How I have missed you so. When are you going to come to NYC?

You flatter me! So you imagine me as an extremely overweight person running through your dreams? Fat fetish old boy?

"pinblock fitted to plate flange" Is that the same as Bosendorfer and Estonia?
If not, what is it that Bosendorfer and Estonia do that transmits the vibration to the keys?

Just found it. Keyboards built into the rim is what Bosendorfer and Estonia do.
