Other people have reviewed this in detail already, so there's no need for me to go into it.

UTILIZATION

And yes, it's my nicest piano, being an organist, I broke my piggy bank when I was 13 to buy it. And I don't regret my decision.

SOUNDS

It is not exceptional in terms of sound, but it's mainly a piano and the piano sound is quite all right.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been playing concerts with it for years and it always works fine.

I've had no trouble despite 22 years of constant use. I have always taken good care of it.

Disassembly, non-aggressive cleaning, changing of the hammer felts (and, yes, it is a mechanical piano inside), which make it an exceptional piano.

It's hard to find it secondhand in good condition, because not many people take the time to service their pianos.

But if you find one, don't hesitate it, the keyboard is fabulous.

Secondhand you may find it for about $400, which is a good deal.

If you miss more modern sounds, add a rack to it and you'll have a superb piano.
