True, but nobody will get excited about building another 6 foot piano. Crowdfunding is all about creating excitement. Also, in order to move forward, I need to build something that can be sold to fund future activities. To sum it up, a boring piano won't attract the funding in the first place, and won't yield a valuable instrument.

I disagree. Build me a 6 foot piano that I can disassemble and put in my van myself, light and practical, that will hold a tuning well, or even better ... really well.

If it does not sound like a piano, but serves it's purpose really well as an acoustic instrument. Give it another name.

I won't argue and probably will be really excited to try it out.

On second thought, if you can make it 5 feet long and about 200 pounds, I will buy it.

All the best.

The piano which came closest to that ideal was the Lindner grand: 6 feet, light, practical, simply constructed, capable of being moved through doorways by one person without extra equipment. Its drawback was probably not its design, but the failure of the upright Lindner.

Actually, it would be a good design to emulate to test a soundboard, since the soundboard is easily replaceable. You could probably make a dozen of them for the cost of making a single concert grand, with various soundboard designs, find the one that works best, go back and change the rest to match, sell all of them quickly, and use the proceeds to get them into production faster than you could sell a single concert grand, particularly one of unknown pedigree.
