PIANO: Yamaha, model M-1A,42” Continental Console Piano , serial # D3465772
Finish: Satin Walnut Finish.
Description: Yamaha Pianos, made in Japan, are very well designed instruments and present a very good value in today’s market. This model was made for the home market as one of the first performance consoles imported. This piano was built in the Hamamatsu factory in the March of 1982 and was purchased that year by the owner at Clark Music. The owner took very good care of the piano (regular service by Michael Lamkin, RPT) and her children did not continue with lessons. Not having been played much, the piano has been sitting in their living room and finally was sold as they are moving. It is an uncommon value due to the fact it is virtually new and in immaculate condition. The piano is built better than its newer Yamaha cousins now manufactured in the factory in Indonesia or China. Most used Japanese pianos available are ‘grey market’ instruments that are made for the Pacific Rim market and not seasoned for North America. But this piano is made for North America and its wood is seasoned for our climate – insuring its durability. This is a high performance console that is highly desired due to phenomenal tone and action. A very, very rare find!!
