The P-80 (and its relatives I believe) has a well-known design flaw. Some white keys - mainly D and C - break at the pivot end, always in the same spot (see picture). I contacted Yamaha when I first became aware of the problem, two or three years after buying a new P-80. Yamaha has refused to acknowledge any fault, even though they are surely well aware of the design issue - their service centres must have replaced thousands of D keys over the past decade. Meanwhile the keys continue to break. I would not recommend buying any product from this company (Yamaha Australia), it has no integrity.
