Don't know if they still make it, but I've got a Yamaha P71 and love it. Just an electric piano, does nothing else but piano. But it sounds great and the keys are properly weighted and velocity sensitive too. To wit: It plays and feels like a real piano.

Weighted keys? So it plays like a real piano?

Or just a monster keyboard? Workstation?

Yes, I am a musician, and have used both. Weighted keys is like a piano, and more expensive.

Any keyboard workstation is going to have multiple piano settings, but also multitrack recording abilities, and a shit ton of other sounds as well.

If she is a musician, workstation for sure. Just to play piano, that’s another matter.

Good package. Get her some Sony phones though, they make the best.

I've plucked on a guitar in my younger days. But I wouldn't be so bold as to call myself a musician.

The word "best" is devoid of meaning in this context.

Do not tell her I said that. :x

Mine comes with the Japanese Original for a slightly higher fee.

P.S. Though make sure you do not have the box left outside . . . in the rain . . . for prolonged periods. She gets irritated.

P.P.S. Wine helps sooth the ruffled feathers.

I’m old enough to remember when that keyboard cost $5000 dollars, with no speakers built in
