Anyone have a plain wire stringing scale for a Kawai RX-2? It's supposedly stamped on the bridge of the piano I am analyzing, but some of the numbers are illegible. Any help appreciated. Otherwise, I contact Kawai but don't know if I can reach them until Monday.

It is in the Kawai parts manual, available for download from the Kawai website. I figure it is better to direct you there for all their information rather than copy it out. This is the link to the download page.

Keith, it might be good to remember that the wire sizes don't necessarily correspond to AWG, though they will be close.

The numbers in the manual correspond to the numbers on the bridge, no matter what wire is used.

Lots of information in those downloads, thanks BDB. No doubt the string gauges are the metric gauge, roughly 1/2 size smaller than AWG.
