Customer Question

what is the approximate value of a 54" Young Chang baby grand player piano Black lacquer. 14 years old

Any condition issues? How often is it tuned?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In very good condition hasn't been tuned in a few years

Thanks for the information. These small baby grand pianos are on the lower end of pricing and the addition of a player allows the dealer to increase the selling price. The player option doesn't add to much to the current value because technology is constantly being improved and most second hand buyers don't want or need a player. This would still be a nice instrument and Young Chang, while priced lower than other Asian makers like Yamaha and Kawai, still makes a good product. Based on your description of maker, age, size, condition and considering the used piano market, I would recommend a selling range today of approximately $5,500-$6,500. Best wishes!
