Hi Melissa,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Has your piano been regularly tuned? Has it had any internal restoration?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It is regularly tuned and. Everything in in is original. Looks brand new inside and out
Expert:  twinb1201 replied 9 months ago.

The serial number indicates that your piano was built in 1977.

Old pianos have no value just for being old. In other words, prospective buyers are not collecting pianos; they want to be able to play them. Pianos have parts that wear out and must be replaced. So, old pianos are at a disadvantage in the market.

If your piano is in excellent un-restored condition, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $2,000. Fully restored, the value would be $5,000.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Melissa.
