Jamie, I hear where your coming from. It's an "in between" piano for you anyway (from what I can gather from reading your posts on here). If it plays and sounds good who cares about the specs, your upgrading sometime in the future anyway.

I've played on alot of cheapo pianos that sucked, but the good ones I've played on were due to being well taken care of and well prepped . Sometimes I've played on them and couldn't believe the name on the fallboard.

Manitou (and the other techs here also), the good playing and sounding inexpensive pianos are a credit to the artistic talent of people like yourself. Instead of insulting the instrument, maybe we should complement the techs that make them playable and listenable. It's too bad the manufacturers are getting the most $$$$ out odf the whole deal, it should go to the techs.
