Hi,

I'm trying to buy used upright piano.
I found Yamaha U3FS with serial 5125993.

Is someone able to help me asses if it was manufactured for Japan market or for European? Piano has been bought in Germany but I wonder if it was previously imported from Japan.

Second question: is U3FS basically the same that U3?

Regards,

There is probably no way of knowing. Yamaha only provides a lookup for North America, presumably because we are special. I've not heard definitive discussion of Yamaha recognizing "made for" anywhere else.

FWIW, the letters after "U3" denote more subtle changes in the evolution of the U3 or features like Silent or Disklavier.
