Hello all,

I have a 6 years old daughter, and she just started the piano class last week. I am trying to purchase a used piano for her to practice at home. Was looking at the craglist and Facebook marketplace, and find one Used made in USA Yamaha P22 45" upright piano for $1600 near my house at Facebook marketplace. according to owner, she is the second owner, and the piano was made around 1997, and it was regularly tuned twice a year with very good condition.


I am just started learning things about piano for these two weeks. please give me some advice on this piano. Is $1600 a good price for this piano? Will this piano fit for a beginner for few years? Thank you ahead for everyone who take time to reply.

That price seems very fair. Assuming it's indeed in a good condition it seems like a good deal - a plus if it's local, because you'd have to shell out the moving cost, most likely. For reference, check out the current listing:

Seems like a very good price to me! When I was looking around 15 years ago, they were going for around $2000-$2200 for ones that were older. Condition is everything though, you may want to get an inspection from a good technician (can find one at ptg.org).

It would be a good piano for a beginner.
