If anyone can get the measurements and post them here, that would be much appreciated.
Anyone who can't DIY a web search, might want to reconsider any DIY project involving tools, especially power tools. And generally stay away from sharp objects.
The Casio web page for the stand says it's: W 1304.4 x D 373.2 x H 631.6 mm *Excluding projections
aka 51.3 in W x 14.7" D x 24.9" H
The thing that really matters is the height of the stand - you want the height to the top of the keys to exactly match a piano. Presumably the height of this is set so that when you add the height of the keyboard, it's the right height. (About 28-1/8 in)
The CDP-120 is: 1,322 x 286 x 129 mm
aka 52.0" W x 11.3" D x 5.1" H - so that gives the width and depth it needs to work with.
FWIW, here's the stand I'm thinking of getting. I want something folding / stow-able rather than the perma-stand. Most of the X-style stands don't go low enough (24.9") for this piano. This Z-stand does, though. And Z stands are supposed to be a lot more stable than the X-stands.
Looks like it has lots more adjustment height settings than other Z stands, and there's more legroom - though it's not foldable, and it's 20" deep (vs about 11.5" for the keyboard).
The Profile Z stand is $50 at Guitar Center, free shipping, and the 15% off coupon SAVBIG15 currently applies. After Discover Cash Back etc, even cheaper. Add sales tax, though. Not currently in stock, but that might be the best bet for an inexpensive yet sturdy stand. Under $40 with Discover CB and sales tax, for me.
Mine just got here today from Musicians Friend. Even though I wasn't able to pull off some of those super slick deals that some people got, I am very satisfied with this purchase at $249. You would not think this is a Casio if the name wasn't on it. The keys feel very realistic. I dont think the sound is quite as good as Yamaha but it isnt too far off and the price savings for the minor difference really sounds like music to my ears.
I thought I got it for $178 but I did better. Got it for $208 and a $100 WWBW gift card. Bought it for $449 and did a 150% PM guarantee (thought it was 110% but the rep voluntarily mentioned 150%). And not a clue about the $208 figure as well but checked my CC statement and it reflects the same. The GC is expected to be shipped out next week. Effectively I got this beauty for $108!
Below is the response I got from M&F. A little testy but at lease I got conformation that I will get my certificate.
"Thank you for your recent inquiry. That E-Certificate for the difference price is still going to be sent but let me reaffirm that it may take anywhere from 10-14 business days from the ship date before you'll receive the email. Sorry for any inconveniences this might cause, but hopefully you can maintain a bit of patience while we get that processed and set up for you.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions or concerns, or if you are not completely satisfied with the service you have received from us today. We appreciate your feedback."
. . .I e-mailed about the gift certificate expiration date and they told me it would expire dec 31. 2012.
Kriscas was correct, and you were told wrong. The certificate I received says it expires Dec 22, 2012, but the Musicians Friend policy http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pages/price-match states they expire January 31, 2013. I verified this by email.
