Someone donated a Kawai CN270 to my church about 5 or 6 years ago. I would like to buy it at a fair price for my grandchildren to practice for their piano lessons. It looks to be in good condition and all the keys etc. work. What should I pay? Also

If the dealer is reputable, and you like the salesman, just pay the asked price and forget the idea of haggling. If this price seems too expensive, ask them if they have a used U1 that would be more in your range. The dealer is not out to gouge you,

Kawai/Shigeru made a change in their newer models to lighten up the action by making the key sticks longer. The new Shigeru models have an "L" at the end, SK-5L for example and they changed the series to GX for Kawai. I recently played a
