Hi Mel, on the whole Steinway are very good pianos, if not great pianos. I had a 1988 Steinway M, lovely in its own ways and never had any trouble. I am classically trained and I played it a lot. I traded it back to the dealer after 22 years when I bought a new B several months ago. My old M was in the Steinway showroom for about a month to two before it was sold. I think the dealer sold it for over $30,000. Your husband is right about the Steinway brand name. Not that I agree that pianos should be treated as an investment, but if one insists on looking at piano as a possible investment, I would say Steinway is definitely among the best.

Good news and bad news,

Its most likely a Teflon piano

Good news, its a Teflon piano, and because some people hate Teflon in the actions of steinways, the market price will be lower, at the very least its a good negotiating tool and could be a relative bargain

Bad news , its a Teflon piano, some techs just don't don't like them, others think they are fine..... and it will affect future resale, but you will also pay less for the piano, so who cares

Assuming you like the way the piano looks, sounds and plays, and it doesn't require a ton of work and your tech signs off on it, you could get a bargain Steinway

But do keep in mind, the resale value of a teflon Steinway is lower, but if you pay less for it to begin with who cares.....

I've found Teflon units with good Teflon either still in them , or replaced work very well as personal players

Do the bushings squeak or make any noises? If it doesn't.. I seriously doubt it will in the future assuming you have a competent seasoned (steinway) technician. Either way, as the above poster said, it is a good negotiating point for you to get the best price possible. Good luck!
