Hi, thank you for your question! I have completed thousands of musical instrument appraisals and will be happy to help with yours.
In researching this brand I find that your piano was built in Korea by the Samick Piano company. Samick is a large operation that has mass produced pianos under many names for decades. They make a lot of "Stencil pianos". It is important to know that Samick pianos are on the lower side of value, then and now, compared to other Asian piano makers offering higher quality, like Young Chang, Kawai and Yamaha. The excellent "like new" condition you describe will certainly help achieve a higher selling range today, despite the fact it is 30 years old. Based on your description of the instrument and considering the used piano market, I would recommend a private sale price range of approximately $4,100-$5,000. Best wishes!
