I'm not getting any takers on the painted piano trend. I can appreciate that "mother-in-law's tacky console" really might look better painted to blend with the decor. However, I have seen this done to a Charles Walter piano. **Sigh**

I once tried "Gorilla" glue on an ivory top as a test. The problem was that it did not seem to bond to ivory very well and it lifted off easily. Of course the top needs to be clamped and then excess foam trimmed.

I come from a background that's mostly folk, rock, and country string-band, so I'm in G, D, and C a lot. Sometimes E. Sometimes A. What I'm trying to say is get familiar with what the rest mostly play in. If you're not playing with other folks, don't

I think with a showroom piano you know what you are getting, or starting out with; with a new from crate piano it's a bit of an unknown. These are not really computer controlled robotic mass produced items. They are musical instruments with subtletie
