Wish I could have seen how they did it. Well, maybe...

Piano Core?

Wonder if they let the tension down on it? Looks life threatening.

The market for piano cores seems healthy in your area...

There's even the bridge. This is a real deal.... just add soundboard, action, keybed and case!

I think this is like the children’s rhyme/prank “Applecore, Baltimore” but instead of having an Applecore thrown at you, the pianocore is thrown at you. Makes sense to me.

Maybe a Pianocore is a mythical creature like a Manticore??

If I wait, do you think he'll come down in the price, or do you think it will snatched up out from under me? Ya know, I could come up with other Baldwin spinets with the core within them, but consider all the work removing the core! It's a very technical operation. Wonder where he learned to do it...

Ask him whether that $100 is what he'll pay to have it hauled away.

But the delivery is FREE.

Edit: Note the construction of the Knight plate.

We have turned a few plates into garden ornaments/flower trellises. They are easy to mount to posts, and look great once covered with roses.
