Wanted to post an early announcement of a piano that I will soon be purchasing in January of the upcoming New Year (2020) and here are some pictures and additional info as taken from the store website:

https://imgur.com/a/miKdDbk

Please note that I have already put down a $1,000.00 deposit to hold the grand until the New Year and will be able to write the check after funds become available in January.

As I am really looking forward to playing this great instrument (that is already in very good condition) very soon! smile

[Edit]

Please note the new member name I have taken is simply an abbreviation for the grand and the year of purchase:

"gp86" = Grand Piano '86 -- (piano is 33 yrs. old -- 1986)
"2020" = date to buy

GP86 - Congratulations on your beautiful Baldwin! Please fill us in on your selection process and “the story of how this piano spoke to you“ that you placed a deposit on it, if you don’t mind sharing those details. Most of us here on PW love the “how I found my piano” stories. Congratulations again, I’ve always loved the classic Baldwin sound. And we do love pictures when your Baldwin has been delivered and is in its new home.

Congratulations. I was playing the 1994 SF10 in our church sanctuary yesterday morning. Love both the feel and the tone.

Question - have you actually seen and played the piano yourself?

I have a 1998 5'2" Baldwin M that I'm mad about. I can't imagine how great to have an SF-10 beast. Enjoy!!!

Congrats on your new Baldwin.
I recently acquired a 1987 SD-10, and love every note that comes out of that wonderful instrument. It’s well known that at that decade excelent traditional American Baldwins were produced, incorporating Bechstein’s technology. And you will feel that beautiful and rich tone, and ease of action work, for sure.
Wish you all the best!

I think the ID is already banned.

You may be right, Retsacnal. Out of curiosity I just tried to send them a PM and got a message they are not accepting PMs.

I'd like to think the best of new members and that they had good intentions here on PW, but you never know. One thing is for sure, the mods here are pretty sharp and not much gets by them when someone tries to circumvent the rules... smile

Hope I'm wrong.

Rick

I have no idea what you’re talking about but from the sounds of it I guess I’m glad I don’t know.

I too always like to welcome new members, and share people's excitement when they get a new piano (especially a Baldwin). But I don't think this was a new member.

FWIW, this is not the first time that someone arrives announcing the pending purchase of an SF-10, a deal to be closed after the new year when some money is moved around. I'm paraphrasing, and not gonna do a thread search, but if memory serves, the same series of IDs have also been linked to some outrageously inflammatory posts in the digital subforum, and a history of canceled sales and returned/exchanged digital pianos.

When I read the first post above I started feeling deja vu, and given this individual's tendency to comment expansively about the irrelevant--in particular their IDs--when I read the 2nd I suspected that it was the same person, who has a series of banned IDs. Anyway, it looks like the mod's shut them down quickly this time.

I thought the the posts here and in the "New Pianos & Keyboards" forum felt familiar. I would think they'd try to be a little smarter about disguising themselves. But ;)I won't post anything to give them any ideas. wink

What is the point of this thread though? Do they just want people to think they're purchasing a grand? Or is there some scam involved?

How odd.

It is really better not to continue this thread— the OP is banned at PW but will occasionally create a new account and try it again. IMHO the ban was well-deserved. Enough from me; I don’t want to be s new target when he reappears. ... which he likely will under a new ID
