Sorry for the delay, thanks for your patience Steve. Yamaha Pianos are very well liked and respected in the US. They sell quite well and thus they generally hold their prices in the secondhand market. The serial number dates your piano to a year of build of 1970, so it is in the order of 46 years old and thus will have quite an amount of depreciation due to age and usage. This is a 4 foot 8 inch Baby Grand so it is a smallish size and the current models are bigger. A new 5 foot Yamaha retails today at around $16,000 after Dealer discounts. I think the $600/800 offers are very much on the low side Therefore based on the information I have and the details you have supplied I believe your piano has a value in the range of $2,500 to $4,000 for a private sale. If you need to sell quickly you may have to accept an offer below this range. Dealers should usually offer you up to 40% less than these figures. You could try advertising it in your local newspapers which may bring you a result. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
