Why sell the piano?

The piano was unplayable. It needed a complete overhaul of all the playing guts inside. There'd be precious little of the original piano left if you'd tried to make it playable. I made that perfectly clear in my ad, hence the lack of interest.

The tuning was so bad that whenever Crazy Sister and I hopped on for a play, it was like "Guess this tune." The sound board would have cracked if you'd tried to tune it to concert pitch, so really it was just a pretty shell.

I've played my new Yamaha for years now, and this old one was taking up space at Mum's place, never played.

I didn't read the ad. I just look at picture. You know the old saying "looks can be deceiving"

Most people had recommended that we turn the old piano into a BAR! The buyers had said that if they couldn't make the piano playable, that's what they'd be doing with it.

Sigh.

Well, that would be a pretty interesting bar. So sad to see an instrument put down though. Especially a piano. RIP...

Oh, and did you Google butt cheese? ;-)

Our church just ditched an untuneable piano. The lady who has it now didn't want to play it, she just remembered her Grandma having heaps of photos on top of one, and so she wanted it just for looks.

Apparently it looks good in its new home with all the family photos on it - and no-one has to ever hear it play again (which is a very, very good thing).

That is a great reason to get rid of the piano!
