We have just bought an upright Yamaha U3 piano!

I have been wanting a nice piano for a while and some of you might have seen my post on what pianos are best..well we bought a Yamaha U3!

COMPLETELY REBUILT piano we bought for about $3500 dollars!

Congrats on the purchase, I have heard a few of these over the last few days and they are truly magnificent!! I too am in Ohio / Cleveland area and looking for a used piano. Could you send me a PM and let me know where you had luck or places to avoid.

Hmmmm,

Completely rebuilt U3 for about $3500 .... Wow, completely rebuilt!
Who can completely rebuild a U3, then resell it for about $3500?

Just curious.
