That's the best news I heard all day! Those curvaceous legs may serve to differentiate the SK but are the main reason I wouldn't consider upgrading.

As a faithful Kawai owner, I petition you to have your engineers work on Millennium III fingers. I'll gladly purchase a set of such fingers, and a Mill III Kawai, too.

Please design the Mill III fingers so they can work as fast as the Mill III action.

Thanks. \:\) \:D

Dear Don Mannino, regarding the ABS materials matter, is it possible for your side to provide some data (or other related materials) for the comparison between ABS and wooden parts?? People in my area are very concern about this matter regarding how long the ABS material can last etc....
