I am a newbie on this forum and would really appreciate some help with my piano purchase decision. I would like to get a good quality used piano for my 5- and 7-year-olds who started piano lessons a few months ago. Where I stay, supply of good used pianos is rather limited and right now the options are a 8-year-old Indonesian made Yamaha LU90 ($1300), a 5-year-old Linden (not sure about model name but about 109cm in height) and a 14-year-old Kawai HA20, 122cm with serial number 2248566 ($2250), made in Japan and imported directly from Japan. The condition of all 3 are very good according to piano tuners - unfortunately, I do not play piano at all and am not in a good position to judge the sound quality myself. I am somewhat inclined to go for the Kawai HA20 despite its age and relatively higher price due to the fact that specs are higher and it was manufactured in Japan. Is this a good choice? Does it make sense to pay over $2000 for a 14-year-old piano?

Appreciate any help!! Many thanks in advance indeed!!
