I guess an upright what is the difference it's what you would find in music class in jr. High
Musical Instrument Appraiser: jennem22, Appraiser replied 11 months ago

This piano dates to 1966.

The difference is that grand, and baby grand, pianos do retain value over time. They continue to be desirable, as they are much higher quality instruments.

Uprights from the mid 20th century, on the other hand, have extremely low resale values.

At most, this would have a resale value of $500, but it may be difficult to get even that much. I'm sorry I don't have better news about value.

If you have additional questions about this item, I am happy to continue working with you. Just continue our discussion in the reply box.

If I have answered all your questions and helped you, please rate my answer. I am not paid by the site until you do. It does not cost you anything more to rate the answer, and I will continue to be available if you have more questions on the item. Thank you.

At the top left above our post are a series of 5 stars. I always strive for 5 star service, but please rate as you feel is appropriate. However, if you are considering a low rating, please try to give me the opportunity to improve my service to you first!

Sincerely,

Jennifer
