Today I got a Clavinova CLP560 for $60 at a rummage sale. It's in perfect shape except that the slide-out fingerboard guide doesn't slide right.

I used to have this same model, and paid $2,400 for it in 1992.

Now I've got to figure out what to do with it.

It could save me the take down and set up time when I take my gig piano to a gig, but I don't have anywhere to keep the gig piano.

I might donate it to a nursing home where I play their problematic piano.

I could keep it in my bass player's house, so we could have rehearsals there.

I could give it to one of my sisters to replace her junky piano.

Or I could sell it for $600.

That's a great find for the price, you've got a lot of good options on what to do with it, but you'll probably have to figure that out on your own. I just wanted to congratulate you on your garage sale savvy!!
