Customer Question

Hello, I am looking at a 2000 Model L that was a player and the player has been removed. It is in excellent condition. The store is asking$64,000. I thought that might be high. Any idea what this piano would have sold for brand new? A black satin finish. Thanks

Thanks for your question. Honestly, $64,000 is about what this piano would sell for new. It retails at $76,000 for the satin ebony finish and would be discounted by the dealer in their showroom for the actual selling price. Considering it is 15 years old and in excellent condition, I would recommend a realistic selling price of $47,000-$53,000. Best of luck!
