I know that my Kawai ES7 is made in Indonesia (among other countries). But I'm not sure about higher-end models like CA95. Are they only made in Japan?

For example, VW Golf is made only in Germany. VW Scirocco is made in Brazil (among other countries). Over here, a Golf Sport costs $7k more than a Scirocco even though they have the same engine and the Scirocco is so much more sexy than the Golf Sport. But the $7k is for the perceived quality difference based on its origin.

So, I wonder if Kawai ensures quality (or if you like, perceived quality) by manufacturing certain models in Japan only?

The CA95 is manufactured in the same facility as the ES7, in Indonesia.

Kind regards,
James
