I don't find any serials that begin with KJKH--can you double check that for me?

KJKHG0212, located above the SG-172. I can send you a photo.

Thanks. Samick manufactured pianos in Indonesia as well as Korea, with the majority being made in Korea. For serial numbers, the Indonesian models all begin with IJ. The Korean models start with J's and later K's, however they have none shown which start with the sequence KJK. For that reason, I am thinking the first K does not belong and that would mean your piano was built in Korea in 2001. I can't be certain about that, but based on the numbers they list, this is my best guess.

This piano's equivalent today sells for about $20,000 and is marked down by each dealer. Considering about 15 years of depreciation in value, I would recommend a selling range today of approximately $9,000-$10,500 in a private sale in excellent condition. Best wishes!

Please select a rating before leaving--I aim for five stars! This is how the website credits me, an independent appraiser, for completing this for you. Thank you!
