I concur with Gary. You might also consider a used professional Yamaha

One other thought: Is there a music conservatory or college/university music
program in Washington, D.C., or northern Virginia that you can contact?
Students or teachers may have good, used instruments for sale or know of
some that are available.

B-12 is plastic (or equiv). Personally I am against buy new instruments
unless they are professional instruments. It is just like buying a new car
as they are only worth a fraction used.

I bought my son a used R-13 when he was about 13. He is still playing it
11 years later. It was $800 then, probably more now. It would seem to me it
would be possible to find a decent used intermediate instrument in your area
or even an older or less popular pro instrument within your budget.

to try e-bay since you never quite know what you are going to get there. I
am looking to pay about $500, preferably less, much less if I can.
