What is the size of this grand piano? I need the maximum length measured to the point over the leg furthest away from the keys. Has it been regularly tuned and maintained please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He said it is 56 inches and needs to be tuned.

Thank you for the information. I will complete the research and come back to you in about 30 minutes.

Expert:  John, CT ABRSM replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your patience.

At 56 inches this is classed as quite a small Baby Grand Piano. These piano were made by the Sojin Piano Company, a division of Daewoo, in a factory in Korea. They were generally of a lower quality and price range.

Based on it being around 26 years old it will have experienced quite an amount of depreciation due to age and usage. Thus on the information I have, I believe this piano has a value for a private sale in the $1500 to $2000 range.
