I'm in the market (again) for an economical choice of a piano for my 6 yrs old. My budget is from $1500-$$3000. I saw an ad for a Yamaha M216 that is almost 30 yrs old, hasn't been played much for $1500. I'm also considered a Henry Miller studio brand new for $2700.

I like to stay on a low end of my budget but need some advise what should I go for. Thanks

What about a new digital piano? There are some quite nice ones between $1000 and $2000.
