I found this very amusing--and now I'm tempted to bump up from an upright to a floor model ;\)

No floor models for me. That looks like work!

Playing the piano isn't "work"...?

That's news to me

A great way to stay in shape (or try to get back there \:D ). Price is a bit steep, however.

Given that my "natural" talent is dancing, not piano playing, I think I missed my calling. Thanks for the link!

$250 is the cost of some low-grade, non-weighted keyboards...

I'd rather have a floor model, TX-Dennis \:\)

I may have misunderstood the price; I thought he said it was 250 thousand[/b]. I'm listening again now to double check. YUP, HE DID SAY THOUSAND. \:D

He didn't say thousand. He said $15,000. Then he said $250 without mentioning the thousand.

I guess I was just too optimistic to notice the inflation comment :'(

Exactly, the thousand was implied based upon the inflation comment.

Wow! It is just as well..... I have too many miles on this body to give this floor keyboard a home. A two hour practice session on that............And I'd be in the bed for a week.

Yeah but I bet it's action has Chinese parts. I'll wait for the version with a Renner myself.
