I am interested in purchasing this piano. This is the information I have on it: serial # is IMK08247. I was told it's 14 yrs old but hardly used. This is an upright but I don't know the height of the piano. The asking price is $1,200.
Is this a fair price if everything checks out with a piano tech?

Also looking into a Samick JS115 ($1,900), no details. Anyone have info on that as well?

The SU143T5 dates to 1993, so it's now 17 years old.

Current condition is everything with either piano. The prices seem roughly OK.

Thank you for your response. I am now looking also at a 30+ yrs old Knabe upright asking price $700.00. Is this also a fair asking price?

From what I have been reading on this website as well as comments from other sources, Samick and Knabe are reputable brands.

They all claim excellent/very good condition. I have not view any of these yet. I will make appointment to look at them with the piano teacher.

Lastly, I have an opportunity to 'inherit' a Winter Royale piano with a wobbly leg. Any advice? Is it a worthwhile piano?
