Doing some research on a piano I want to buy and a piano I would be selling as well

Expert's Assistant: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The serial number on the Tadashi is(###) ###-####although I can't find any online databases that allow me to look up that model.I'm interested in buying a used Boston grand as well. It's a GP 163 with a serial number of 136375. Also seems to be in good condition but I'm not sure how much to offer for it.

Hi, I have completed thousands of instrument appraisals and will be happy to help with yours. *Please ignore phone call offers, I work online only.

I can help you with both of these pianos, though do be advised the website requires each appraisal be in a separate paid question. Would you like help with the Tadashi first?

sure. I think I need more assistance with that since it's a lesser known brand

No problem. The serial number you provided dates this piano back to 1986. These were introduced into the U.S. in 1981 and made by a company called Atlas piano in Japan. Your T-30 is 1 47" studio upright model which is on the larger end of upright sizes. Considering over 30 years of depreciation as well as the fact this is a rather obscure company, a selling range would be lower than what you would expect for more popular Asian brands like Yamaha or Kawai.

In the very good condition you describe, I would recommend a used market value today of approximately $1,200-$1,800 in a private sale.

Please select a rating before leaving--I aim for five stars! This is how the website credits me, an independent appraiser, for completing this for you.

If you would like help with the other piano, please open a new question for the same amount and begin it with "for Tyler" so I know it is for me. Thanks!
