At this time of year, I have people asking about pianos for sale so I wanted to make you aware of this one that is available through my piano tuner.
He is asking $3,000 plus appropriate sales tax for the piano and matching bench. This includes delivery, one free tuning, and a one year warranty.
The baby grand piano model is a Sohmer #69129 Mfg. 1927 5'4" Mahogany cabinet Cupid Model With matching bench. Sohmer is an old piano company that manufactured pianos into the 1970s. Although not a Steinway, it is considered among the better American pianos.
The piano is in very good original condition. It has not had much use over the years. Soundboard and pin block are very good for excellent tuning stability and sound projection. Keytops are ivory in excellent condition. Action is in very good condition. (Which means the keys respond easily to the fingers) Finish is fair to good. Some checking and minor blemishes but no major defects.
My piano tuner purchased this piano from the estate of a woman whose parents had purchased it for her as a young woman. She played occasionally. He had serviced the piano over the years. He cleaned the entire piano inside and out and touched up the cabinet. He also resurfaced the hammers and completely regulated the action (which means that the inside mechanical parts work the way they are supposed to with no sticky keys). The piano has had two tunings and the hammers have been voiced (means it has a nice sound). Given a healthy environment (not too humid or dry), it should have excellent tuning stability.
If you are interested in looking at this, please let me know.
