While the merits of musical instruments manufactured twenty years ago are now not necessarily affected by the commercial standing or historical record of their makers. Prospective used piano buyers usually desire to know something concerning these instruments. This chart simply documents the list prices of these instruments at that time. These prices do relate very well to current used piano prices. For example, a dealer will sell these same pianos used for around the same price as the original. This is only after considerable costs to move, tune, recondition and guarantee.
