Indeed. I'm going to be creating a new page in the Models section specifically for the Home Piano now that they keep coming out of hiding like this and we even have documentation, not to mention Tim W's verification of the amp system. Rob, I'm dedicating that page to you man!

Just a point of contention - the student model and the home model look relatively close in appearance, but if you notice on the models section the home model (at the very bottom) is in a full wood casing.  This model you have above is the student model produced in the early 70s (notice standard harp cover).

...which is why I completely removed the 1977 Home Piano photo and description from the bottom of the Student Pianos page this week and announced the upcoming "official" Home Piano page. The KMC I piano shown in that picture is not rare at all!!!
