Hi, All,

I am looking for a Piano Book price check on the Yamaha T116 satin ebony.

Does anyone out there have the 2007-2008 supplement to Larry Fine's Piano Book? (Or even the one before it?) I have the 2008-09, but the Yamaha T116 is not a current model so it won't help me.

I have played one I like very much for my beginner (young) son. I would like to know what the supplementlists for the price on the Yamaha T116 satin ebony model. (NOT the polished ebony, but the satin. Sometimes referred to, I think, as the T116 SE or ES.)

I have checked libraries and bookstores and cannot find an older copy of the book.

Thanks very much!

I have seen four units of the T116 SE. The finish was consistantly horrible. The graining in the rub out to achieve the satin look was way too coarse and made it look very gray.
How is the MSRP price on a long since discontinued model? That factory closed March 07.
If you are pricing out a used instrument, give us more information on a specific unit.

Hi,

I am hoping someone has the 2007-2008 (or the year just prior?) Piano Book supplement because the price listed in the supplement would help me figure out my negotiating options.

The finish on this one looks good enough to my eye, but thanks for the heads up.

The dealer bought this T116 from Yamaha just prior to the factory closing and it has been on loan for a year to a local university. The dealer is reputable.

Because the piano was "on loan" it is still considered new for warranty purposes, which is good.
