For those folks still harboring the ludicrous belief that pianos have a 30-year lifespan, a belief perhaps acquired from a nakedly self-serving new piano store, said folks obviously haven’t met this piano…yet. The cosmetic condition of the cabinet is not perfect, hence the lower then average price for this model. However, if performance and a lower price is more important to you than a flawless finish, you should take a serious look at this piano. If you play this piano, and examine the internal parts (see picture slideshow and video above), and can honestly say that it looks and plays like an “old” piano, then maybe our world of used pianos just isn’t for you. In that case, you might be happier dropping $14K for a new Yamaha U3. For everyone else, pianos like this are why we come to work each day, and why our customers have been keeping our doors open and our lights on for over 30 years.
