A brand-new Steinway 1098 with a walnut finish has a non-negotiable price tag of $37,500. Meanwhile, we are offering this piano for $7,298. Our warranty is always 10 years on all parts and labor, while Steinway’s new warranty is 5 years. This handsome Steinway upright is entirely original, inside and out, and outside of some minor cosmetic repairs, we did not have to replace anything on this piano, since it was obviously barely used and thus has decades of healthy, useful life ahead of it. So, to summarize this exercise in smart shopping: This piano is $30K less than new, 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.
