Build quality on Yamaha arrangers is sub par compared to many other manufacturers. Spending $2K or more for a plastic toy isn't my idea of money well spent.
No I haven't played a Wersi...we don't see them in my neck of the woods.
I imagine it is a fine instrument...it would have to be impressive at that lofty price point.
They do seem to have their own market niche and a loyal following.
