Made in Hamamatsu, Japan in 1987. This is the popular Yamaha UX-3 series Ebony Polish 52" professional upright. All the UX series pianos are manufactured using higher grade materials than the standard U series pianos. Externally the UX series all have the famous X bracing on the back, adding more strength to the construction of the piano.
Internally the bass strings are longer on the UX models than the standard U model pianos, even though the pianos are the same in height. Yamaha have achieved this by curving the bridge at the bottom of the piano. Higher grade wood and felt are used on hammers and dampers on all UX models.
This piano comes with Northwest Pianos 5 year parts and labor warranty.
