Just arrived (and photographed in its "raw" state), a real find for the
person who's looking for a great piano - but is budget minded and not as
concerned about cosmetics!
This is a 1973 Yamaha 444" console that plays GREAT and has been
very well maintained inside (see photos). Aside from a few small chips in the
keys that do not affect the playing (see photo), the keys, action and sound
board are in excellent condition.
As for its cosmetics . . . we're showing photos when it arrived so you
can see the "worst" it could be. We will be sprucing it up a bit prior to
putting it on the floor; however, it presently is not a show piece. It has taken
some hard hits externally. Fortunately, nothing regarding its playability has
been affected. (Of course, with some light sanding/filling, one could repaint
the case in black lacquer!)
The piano has a terrific tone and incredible bass range. And, most
importantly, it's a YAMAHA that holds its value!
The original bench was in pretty bad condition so we will be including a
good quality used bench.
Make an appointment to audition it soon - it won't last long!
