Hello Everyone...i am pretty much a new user here.
I am beginner but I want a solid instrument to start practicing on. I don't want tons of distractions/settings i think it takes away from what you should be focusing on (at least in the beginning).
I have been reading the forum to get an idea that the p-120 and p-155 are good recommendations as decent beginning/intermediate level instruments.
With that being said, I know $999 for p-155 is a bit much for me to spend so I have been looking on Craigslist to see if I can spot a deal.
I came across two: Yamaha P-120 Keyboard needs repair - $400 http://newjersey.craigslist.org/msg/3967656208.html
I am not expert with electronics but if it is at least making sounds I guess the bulk of the system is in-place (?) but I also know $400 for a keyboard that doesn't play is way too much. What should I be offering for something like this?
Other one I have seen is P-155...i would think a good price would be $500. I believe $800 is a bit steep and only $200 away from getting it new! http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/msg/4012848699.html
I haven't been around these digital piano's that long to be able to judge fair price. Any feedback would be a great help!!update:
Thank you again everyone who helped with this. I was able to get the P-155, stand, pedal, headphones, music holder (no stand0) for $650. I think it worked out nicely!
