I think we now know the reason why Koji choose the piano: when is the last time someone you read on the news that someone had their Steinway grand stolen from the passenger seat of their car? Jon.
Ha, you'd think, but 3 years ago a friend's Faziolli was stolen while he was on vacation, along with a lot of other stuff.

Just read that it was returned. The violinist from whom it was stolen informed us that it was found in an alley... good god.

After reading this thread $6000 suits, $600 shirts, and $3000 shoes are starting to sound like bargains.

Keep in mind that though instruments are expensive, they often beat the Dow. Clothes and the like don't really last that long and don't represent a sound financial investment. So in relative terms, one could say that the latter represents a more lavish and extravagant expenditure.

The bow must be gold mounted and in great condition, it's value is $350,000....

I was also blown away that someone entrusted with that valuable of an instrument would leave it on the seat of their car in a grocery store parking lot.  I suppose that happens, though.
It happens??  That's one irresponsible kid, in my view.  I don't leave the faceplate to my $85 CD player in my car let alone an $850k violin. The article said she was prepared to "work off the debt," though.  That's nice.  It would probably take only 20 years or so. dan

On the other end of things, the rental my five year old daughter uses for Suzuki didn't cost nearly that much. Me, I'd be content with a measly $100k Gibson Loar mandolin... (and picks are lots cheaper than bows.)
