Hello Everyone, I just sold my Yamaha for 16,000. I payed 26,000 last year. It's like a new car. I think my next piano will be a used one but a nice used one. Steingraebers new 5'7 are 90,000. How much is one that's 10 or 20 years old ? Thanks again. Steve

It is extremely unlikely that you will find a used Steingraeber grand of any age, let alone one 10-20 years old, let alone a specific model. They make very few pianos, and in the U.S., there wasnt even a dealer 20 years ago, and there were only 2 dealers 10 years ago. When I became a Steingraeber dealer nearly 8 years ago, I was the third. 8 years ago, they were only making 30 grands per year for the entire world. Now they are up to around 60-75 grands for the entire world.

If you want a Steingraeber, you will most likely have to buy one from a Steingraeber dealer and probably a new one.

You took such a beating on your Yamaha as you sold it at the end of year 1. Had you been able to wait until about year 6 or 7 you might have broken even. This is due to predictable wholesale price increases that raise retail pricing to double about every 12-15 years.

You can find them you just have to know where to shop. I just wanted an idea the price range. I have seen older ones recondition for about 16 to 20 thousand. Take care Steve

Older ones reconditioned for 16-20k have nothing to do with a new Steingraeber, or a slightly used Steingraeber.
