Kawai Piano Model, Serial Number and Age

How to find Kawai piano ageThe model and serial number of Kawai piano is printed on your warranty card and the receipt when you bought the piano from Kawai retailer from your local area.

In case you need to sell or buy second hand piano but didn’t have this info handy, we listed some alternatives you can locate them.

Where to find your Kawai Piano model and serial number

Apart from the warranty card, you can also find both information printed on the piano itself. For an acoustic piano, these are stamped on the frame of the piano. For upright piano, you may find the model number on the right hand side of the frame with serial number stamped on it. As for grand piano, you can find the serial number to the left of the model number. As for digital piano, the model and serial number are printed on the name plate on the underside of the keybed.

How to find the serial number and model

Open the piano lid and look for a long number stamped in black ink on gold colored iron plate, near the tuning pins. That will be the serial number, normally 6 or 7 digits long and sometimes start with a letter. The model number is near or at the same area but it may vary the way it is marked. It can be stamped in ink, in raised medallion or raised lettering.
