Does anyone have any thoughts or know anything about this piano beyond what is written in Piano Buyer? Anyone have an opinion on it? I’m just considering buying it, that’s all. Thanks.

It's been many years ago but I've played the Bechstein Academy A124 and liked it quite a bit. The action was light and responsive with the typical Bechstein tone (somewhat on the mellower side). If I were looking for an upright in that price range it would be a serious contender. Have you played it?

Anton Rubinstein said about the piano: "You think it is one instrument? It is a hundred instruments!"

Yes, I’ve played it and my thoughts are exactly as you say.

When you say, “an upright in that price range”, what other models would you compare the piano to? I think this price range is a little odd. Kawai K800? Yamaha YUS5? Boston 132?
