I'm looking at a Young Chang U-121 48" (serial T00117139) that the seller says is from 2010 but this website puts at 2005-2006 (blue book website does not have anything on this serial). Great condition and sound, seller is asking for $2500 including delivery (which seems low to me). Does the discrepancy matter and does this seem like a fair price?

It's possible that they bought the piano new in 2010 but it had been built in 2005-2006. You could ask them.

"Great condition" according to whom? Has the piano been inspected by a technician to certify that? As far as price is concerned it depends first upon condition and secondly upon the market in your area.

If free delivery is being offered, is this from a dealer? What do you know about the dealership?

A Young Chang from 2005/2006 is not the same as one manufactured today.

Confirming that 2005 is correct for the age of this piano. The Young Chang pianos built in Tianjin (where this piano was built) had issues at the time. I would definitely recommend having the piano examined by an independent technician before jumping in.

Good Luck,
