Hope I wasn't bidding against someone here, but I just won the ESX for $255. Seems like a pretty good deal to me since the stand and bench came with it, too.

Now I'll have a portable decent quality piano to travel with.

Just kidding \:\) . How much were those things brand new?

LOL!! \:D \:D

Congratulations, OnTheWeb-- sounds like you got a good deal indeed. And the good news is that even if it turns out to be a lemon, it's only $255. Seems like a pretty good risk-benefit ratio to me.

They seem to have been right around $1000, maybe a little less. I saw some old adds where ESX closeouts used to go around $600. The seller will warranty it for 2 years for $25. If it breaks or can't be repaired at their expense, including they pay shipping, the full purchase price is refunded.

There were 9 bidders, I didn't think it would go for that low, I thought it was worth right around $350 -- you can't even buy a casioPx110 for that. Plus it has all the jacks and computer ports I need. In a few days we'll find out how I did.

Hi OnTheWeb,

I'm a newbie here on the form. I just purchased a used Kawai ES-X from a local pawn shop. I have to say that the action is good; I'm getting addicted to this DP!

I'm interested in learning how things are going on your end with the ES-X.

By the way, I haven't been able to find a music rest for my ES-X. I guess it's hard to find accessories for such an old board. Are you using any music rest? If so, can you provide some details?

Thanks.

Piagineer,

Welcome but do not hold your breath waiting for a response from OnTheWeb.

@LarryShone Thanks (if that was addressed to me :-?)

@o0Ampy0o Indeed, that particular post was from 2007 :-( Thanks for pointing that out.
