Musical Instrument Appraiser: Tyler, MM, AAGO, Musician/Appraiser replied 4 months ago

In checking the serial records for the Knabe company, I found this piano was built in 1979. Knabe was a part of the American Piano Company, a huge piano conglomerate that bought up several American companies throughout the 20th century. This piano appears to be in good original condition and has a nice lighter finish. This piano would also work well in a home or small studio setting.

Based on your description, the photos and depreciation in the used piano market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $4,000-$5,300 in a private sale. Best wishes!
