Kawai KG-5D s/n 1337491:
Purchased new in 1983 this 6’8″ Semi-Concert Grand piano is going to be surplused soon.
The model KG-5D is no longer being manufactured, but I did some research and the comparison model being manufactured today is the GX-5 and ranges in price from $30-40k.
I tuned and thoroughly cleaned the piano inside and out, including the key bed and soundboard, removing water stains from the sound board beneath the strings. In the cleaning process I also located and removed a random screw that was hiding underneath the plate and causing unwanted rattling noises.

So there it is. A very attractive piano, nice sounding, 6’8″ Kawai grand with a VERY stable tuning. Great condition, very sturdy metal bench with padded seat, and fitted padded cover.
I have found comparables online for sale for as much as $13,000.
