I have tried a few Yamaha pianos like the jx-113 and the ju109 and I liked them, though the m3 is supposed to be better. I've also played the p22 made in the US and it is a great piano.

Yes, it was a bit misleading when I read about the different versions, that's why my question (which I later edited out). Now a question for present owners. Would you go for Stage or Standard? And why? Owners of both versions, please chip in Also,

Well, I'm no expert, but this is the way I'd go about it: First ask if you should be aware of any problems - keys, buttons, connectors, speakers (just to help him recall if there are problems) or anything else. If the seller is moderately honest, yo
