Thanks. One other question--do you know the age of this piano? The serial you listed isn't within the range of the numbers listed for this company's records.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The # ***** *****: We bought the piano in about 1985. Thanks Lorraine
Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 10 months ago.

Thanks for the information. Based on that build year, your piano would have been built by the Samick company in Asia. Samick produces pianos under several different names and their instruments are on the more economically priced side. Based on your description of finish, size and condition as well as considering the used piano market and depreciation since new, I would suggest a selling range today of approximately $2,500-$3,200. Best wishes!

Please select a positive rating before leaving--this is the only way I am credited for my appraisal. Thanks!
