After several months of searching and considering many rebuilt grands (and a few new), we happened on a 1968 Baldwin SF-10 in a private sale that our daughter was really excited about when she played it Sunday. We were originally looking in the 5'8" to 6-ish range, but have plenty of space for a 7 footer.
I am eternally grateful that Roy Peters, MPT has been our guide along this journey. He has inspected several candidates for us and answered my questions most patiently. He feels like this piano is in solid playable shape now and a good value at less than half the price of several smaller Baldwin and Steinway rebuild/rebuild candidates we were looking at. In a few years we are likely to need new strings and a bit of action work, but even so, the numbers look great. Most importantly, our daughter enjoyed playing it and can't wait to get it into the house. Thank you also to all of you on this forum. I found a lot of info lurking here.
Now all we have to do is hire the piano movers and find a new home for our lovely, practically new Walter upright. It's a great piano, and it seems a shame to sell it after only 4 years. But a 15x30-foot room calls for a grand and we only need one piano. I hope it will make some family very happy. It should--it's in pristine shape!
I believe I am going to have to learn to play. At least for now it has a PianoDisk player. :-)
Here's a pic in it's former home.
