I've come across a store that sells reconditioned Yamaha's, and among them this W110 model in walnut satin finish. Serial number is 3937443, so it was built in 1984. From what I know it is basically a U1.

They ask about 3,000 euro for it, while new ones are sold for a little more than 7,000. There seems to be plenty of similar deals on reconditioned U1's, but I must say that I liked this particular model and this store. If I don't want the piano anymore, they will take it back in 1 year at 10% less, in 2 years at 20% less and so on. Oh, and there's a 5-year warranty.

What do you think?

Yeah it doesn't look very common...

This is the inside... just like an old U1 right?

Nice looking upright piano! I like the curved legs; it gives it just a little style compaired to the streight leg.

It looks a little taller than the 48" U1; It may be similar to the U perhaps?

Maybe someone with more knowledge of pianos will chime in...

Good luck!
