What is the height of the piano?

Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for the information! This is a standard sized studio upright at this height and would work well for many applications. So many companies were making short, low quality spinets and console models for many years--the larger uprights are worth more and have a better tone quality. Considering the approximate age of 30 years, the maker, height and described condition, I would suggest a selling range today of approximately $1,800-$2,300 in a private sale. I certainly recommend having your local technician provide his opinion as well since he will be able to judge condition in person and adjust accordingly to your market. Best wishes!
