Thanks for your question. My name is John. Welcome to JustAnswer and it will be my pleasure to help you.

Based on the serial number you have given this piano was built in 1989 so it is some 28 years old. Thus it will have experienced some depreciation due to age and usage.

Therefore based on the information I have plus the details you have provided, I believe that in the current piano market, your Piano has a value of $4,500 to $5,000 for a private sale.

I work as an independent qualified expert and spend a considerable amount of time ‘standing by’ awaiting questions being posted on this site and then responding. I complete research through my own extensive records, books and other sources to which, as a professional, I have access and I often have to pay for important information in order to complete these appraisals. Thus if you do not accept the answer with at least 3 stars rating, I do not receive any credit for my time and effort. As a professional I can only give you a value based on the current markets and a reflection of similar sales. Therefore may I please ask you to now click on the star rating system Many thanks, ***** ***** need any more help or explanations I am very happy to continue our discussion on here before or after you have completed the rating.
