Vintage (1985) Yamaha stage piano. Yes sir – this is the one used by Genesis, The Grateful Dead, Heart and well… Billy Joel.
This was the cat’s pyjamas when it came out in 1977 and blew all the other stage pianos away with its full piano sound.

The CP-70 is an electric grand piano developed to deliver the depth of expression of an acoustic instrument
while holding its own when performing on stage with electric guitars played at full volume through an amplifier and speakers.
Very similar to a cut-down acoustic grand piano, the CP-70 features the same frame action and frame construction as an acoustic piano, but can be split into two cases for storage, and utilizes an electric guitar-style pickup system to pick up the sound for amplification via an amplifier.
Its characteristic bright, edgy sound swept the music scene, with the CP-70 seeing extensive use in both live performance and recording scenarios.
