One more post from me, guys. Need your help!

Arranged to see 2011 yamaha GC2 grand tomorrow, asking price is 13k, that includes delivery and first tuning. I am having a tech look at it tomorrow to evaluate it.
If it works out, it will be 13k flat (no added fees). What does this price sound like for this piano?

I checked the new price for a Yamaha GC 2 and SMP is over 26K so depending on your location and the market and the wear and tear of that particular GC2, I would certainly check it out for 13K. I’ve played a GC2 before and was pretty impressed. Keep us posted and best wishes!

Seems correctly priced for a fairly quick sale, if in good condition.

Inna_denver, how exciting!! I have a C2, so not the exact same specs, but the same size. Also, mine is 20 years old. I bet the 8 y/o GC2 is a very nice piano! Be sure to give us a report!

Good luck!!

Looked at the piano with a tech today. Its condition is excellent, but it needs voicing and some of the notes sound way too bright. The tech who is working with me is doing some work on the hammmera right now to see if that will help the tone to sound much better.

Ended up buying it -$12,350 and it includes delivery. The tech said that a bright tone can be further corrected, if needed, but it's in excellent condition.

Congratulations on your newish Yamaha grand! Yay!! You might want to take pictures or video the delivery of your piano. We here at PW love to look and watch piano deliveries and it might be something enjoyable to remember the happy day.
