Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. The serial number records show that this Piano was made in the USA in 1992, so it is around 24 years old. Thus it will have some depreciation due to age and some usage. Kawai Pianos have a good reputation for quality and sell quite well in the second-hand market. The 42 inch height means that it is classed as a console piano. The current Kawai models are now slightly higher. Based on the information I have and the details you have supplied, the value will now be in the $1,500 to $1,800 range for a private sale. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
