Customer: replied 10 months ago.
somewhere this site says i have opened two inquiries for this piano. i want to pay only once, please.
Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 10 months ago.
Thanks for the info. This piano would have been built in 1976 based on the serial number you provided. At this time, Steck pianos were a part of the large piano conglomerate Aeolian-American. They later belonged to Mason and Hamlin before production was stopped in the 1990's. At 62" this is a small baby grand. Considering the age and maker, the value would be on the lower end compared to a newer model of comparable quality.
In the current used market, and based on the photos and info, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $2,200-$3,000 in a private sale.
Please select a positive rating at the top and submit before leaving. This is the only way the website credits me for working with you. Thanks and best wishes!
