Thanks for your question David. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you.

These piano are made by the large Chinese piano maker DongBei and since 1999 have been sold in the U.S. Unfortunately they are generally not of a high standard and thus even though it is only 6 years old it will have suffered quite substantial depreciation.

Based on the information I have, the age, type and current markets, I believe your piano has a value in the $7,000 to $8,000 range for a private sale. I am sorry that it is not better news, apart from it being a Chinese made piano built to a price level it also is rather like a new car which as soon you drive it off the lot it depreciates quite dramatically.
