I am looking to buy my first acoustic piano. This Heintzman + Co piano is listed at $300, built in 1910. Can someone tell me please, is it worth it, and how long can I expect to play it, when will it need repairs? [img]http://forum.pianoworld.com//ubbthreads.php/galleries/2996715.html#Post2996715[/img]

It needs repair right now. There are keytops missing from it. There are probably other problems with it, but that much is obvious.

Sadly, this Piano has no value as true with most vintage pianos. If you are interested, hire a professional technician to help you assess the current condition and the cost to repair. Please note that the moving alone will be quite expensive and difficult Because of the size.

I’m saying this as a true vintage piano lover. I’ve now had one Upright and one grand
