A new racing car?

A new identity?

(We are allowed three guesses, aren't we?)

Gosh, this is tough. How about:

A new bass tuba? (I'm sure I must be getting warmer!)

A picture might be a useful clue ;\) .

Best wishes,
Matthew

Some strange designer bookshelf? But not ery practical, since the biggest part of it is covered by this useless black board... \:D

I'm not really familiar with "skirt-peeping" sights of pianos, but could it be a Kawai?

And nobody say "Flugelhorn" and this point. \:\)

My guess is she's about 5'1" - 5'3" , salt and pepper locks, soft to the touch with the sweetest voice you ever heard, and also about 400lbs..

hmmmm

I'm totally guessing at the size of it but it looks to be around 6-1 from what I can see.


That makes it a Yamaha G3

From previous posts, Startover was looking at Brodmann, Vogel, and Nordiska.

My guess now is Vogel.

Yup. Vogel. The distance between the E and the next letter, the music desk, no brass socks. It all fits. V177T

DOH!

Ok it's not a Wagner because the typeface is wrong.

It's not a CozEy Writer stencil because he doesn't allow e-word finishes

The E is the correct typeface for Vogel (sanz the underline) which (also) doesn't rule out Schimmel!

But Schimmel has a darker interior.

So based on MarkJ's detective work, my second guess is a Vogel 177


This is more fun than Sew Duck Cue (as they call it down south.)
