Anyway, best of luck! I hope it's a good one.

I think the ads on that page are misleadingly worded. They all say "orginal price"(implying the prices quoted were the prices when the piano was first purchased) instead of "price if purchased new today".

I am very happy for you and your "dedicated intermediate student teenage daughter."

Guapo,

Congratulations to you and your daughter.

I was late in reading this thread but was thoroughly pleased with your decision. My Father had an SF-10 located in the living room in the house that I grew up in - and never was there a disappointing encounter with its seamless obedient action and powerful tone. By comparing specs, materials and method of manufacturing between the two pianos that you were to select from gives you an overall idea of integrity and craftsmanship of each instrument. I remember our tuner praising its "pinblock..." Incase you are not aware of its specs check it out, not many are built alike it today.

Thanks. I did my homework on it, believe me. The Hailun was my second choice if I could not swing the SF-10. I do wish to know if anyone does, what is the finish of a 1986 (it was advertised as a 1985) polished ebony case, lacquer or polyester?

I believe that Baldwin only introduced polyester finishes in the late nighties, as commissioned by Gibson of course. It is to my knowledge that your piano has a lacquer finish.

Your daughter is very fortunate indeed. The SF-10 is a magnificent concert quality instrument. Well done!
