The P188 could be very much considered the dark-knight cousin of the Bechstein Premium A190. Although not identical, they’re so close in materials, design, and construction, that without the distinctive silver plate of the Hoffmann, they’d be difficult to tell apart.  A perfect size for a serious player with a typically-sized room, the P188 gives you everything you want in a piano: breathtaking sustain, exacting precision, and a wide tonal palette with which to work.
