Can you provide the serial number please or the approximate year it was built?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The baby grand is black about 4'6" with numbers 62105 and C143 on the sound board(?). We bought it new in ~1998.

Thanks for the information. This grand was Asian made as opposed to earlier Wurlitzer piano's that were built in the United States. Many of these pianos were built smaller than the standard baby grand and this is one example of that. While it is a baby grand, the sound will not be as full as that of a larger baby grand over 5 feet in length.
