A brand-new Steinway 1098 with a satin ebony finish has a non-negotiable price tag of $32,300 and a 5-year warranty. Meanwhile, we are offering this piano for $7,898 and a 10-year warranty on all parts and labor. This handsome Steinway Centennial edition 1098 model has new Abel hammers from Germany and an a gorgeous new hand-rubbed satin ebony finish. Otherwise, it is entirely original and has decades of healthy, useful life ahead of it. So, to summarize this little exercise in smart shopping: This piano is less then ONE QUARTER the price of new, but includes DOUBLE the warranty coverage of a new Steinway, AND includes a lifetime upgrade guarantee as well. It shouldn’t take you long to figure out which is the better value. Just don’t figure too long, because while you’re figuring, someone else is buying.
