I particularly like "authentic melodic sound." That is totally unlike the 'fake melodic sound' from a digital.

The writer of this ad should go into the business. It is the best written ad for a junk piano I have ever seen. :-)

**********

"Behold the greatest piano your money can't buy! Imagine your home filled with the sweet sound of music spewing forth from your own antique piano; the soothing melody of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" lulling you to sleep, or the exciting jazz concerto "Rhapsody in Blue" being the soundtrack of an informal dinner party (accompanied, of course, by your private jazz ensemble).

This quality Strohber, built in the 1920s, would be perfect for such performances after it received a considerable deal of tuning, regulation, and repair. In its current state (after tuning) it would make an acceptable piano for a first time piano student, but after about two years of lessons it would be advisable to upgrade to a much newer piano.

If you are looking for a decorative antique piano, this is it. Pianos are much more than instruments, complex machines, and works of art, they are pieces of furniture. The wooden cabinet is in great shape for its age, as it has few gouges and scratches, and the wood itself has a beautiful golden glow, just see the pictures!

This would also make a great piano for repurposing into anything you can think of!! See some ideas in the link below...

http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=repurposed%20piano&term_meta%5B%5D=repurposed%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=piano%7Ctyped\

Lastly, this instrument is currently located in a ground level pole barn connected to a driveway, which would make it very easy to load onto a trailer. Better still, it is on four easy rolling, heavy duty casters and can be rolled around by one person.

Due to high demand, I will only be accepting text messages and emails regarding this wonderful instrument."

For only $300 you can have this "piano"?!! I have never seen anything like it in real life and hope not to.

I like the "Needs tuning." On the other hand, composers have written music for toy pianos.

While these are great to see, the link eventually dies. Did a screen capture and posted this as suggested by Frank. Buy a piano and tune it yourself!

Well, perhaps a little closer to the fireplace.....Maybe a hot ember will fly out ( lack of fireplace screen) and put that thing out of its misery ...

The ultimate catch phrase that gets me every time.
''They don't make pianos like this anymore as the sound resonates unlike the more modern pianos.'' I bet it does.

And an interesting lapsus..
