Greetings to all!
I signed up on PW in 2001 to learn about pianos because my then 15 YO daughter had outgrown our beloved Landfill
upright. She's all grown up now and getting married next year. We've decided to sell the piano to help pay for the ceremony.
It's this piano - from the party at my house in 2007. The action was sluggish the night of the party but it's all better now:
When I bought it we talked about it here, and the cracks in the finish on the top are no better (or worse) than they were before:
And this thread brings back fond memories:http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/202926/2.html
That was then, this is now.
As before, there is precious little to go on as far as how much I should ask for it. S/N is 142960, ca. 1970. The strings are original and due for replacement at some point. Ditto the hammers. That said, it still sounds like it's supposed to sound - a mellow, romantic kind of piano. The keys are ivory and look great. I've had some work done over the years, but not a lot. There is a matching bench of no particular pedigree. I have an offer on it but am not inclined to take it just yet.
So - how much do I ask? How much do I take?
Should I throw another party for old time's sake and a chance to kick the tires? (I'd like that, but I am not really hooked in here anymore.)
