Yamaha GA-1 question

    I have a church in town that has been offered for purchase a Yamaha GA-1 5' grand, built in 2002, and they wanted me to evaluate the instrument.  I understand there was a recall on these pianos and that they were not manufactured but for 3 or 4 years, when a new model of the same piano was manufactured. 
    Does anyone know what were the issues with the piano and what the recall was all about?  Thanks so much!

    There are many comments on Pianotech about this model which I believe had poor scaling, difficult to tune and stay in tune etc  . I believe I tuned one and it sounded no better after the tuning. It may be better to keep shopping no matter how good the price seems. Keep in mind it is a 19 year old piano probably needing hammers, action regulation etc
