For rather high amounts (we ARE talking about $100,000 here in an older time, so even more now) the standard practice is to get a prepayment, at least. Regardless on how the other person is.

It is a mistake to shop for a piano based on specifications alone. Both really bad and really good pianos can point to their wonderful specifications. Sometimes, the list of specifications and advantages we read in company marketing hasn't changed
