Finally, a rare sighting of the elusive "cabinet grand"?

Actually, the Hardman Grand Piano on that Craigslist page would be a good deal for a spectacular piano.

I thank God I’m not the budding musician that has to practice on that! And so many PW members scoff at Asian pianos. We just don’t appreciate how fortunate/blessed/lucky we truly are.

As my daughters would say, I know, right?

Do they really think someone is going to spot and pick up a piano on the curb? laugh ha
"Let me stop, grab it, and throw it in the back of my minivan!"

My guess is that you are right about the trash collectors! It's probably been out there a while already, and the owner has realized the trash service will not take it. They are trying to entice someone into coming to take it away. thumb

Anyway, if it's at all serviceable, it's sad to see it literally kicked to the curb. frown

That's what I was thinking, as well. And honestly, if it was ever playable, I doubt it would be now, since it's been cow-tipped. I can't imagine whoever didn't this got at least 4 friends together and gently lowered it onto its back. 😂😂😂

Yeah -- to me, good condition would imply right side up and in the garage, not outside.... ;-)

I think covered porch is "good condition," and garage would be "great condition!"

Apparently some college throws a piano off the roof of a building each year (MIT?). Personally I think it's sacrilegious.
