Biggest spinet I have seen for a while...

I don't usually care to play a "spinet" but could consider this one: http://austin.craigslist.org/msg/3873125932.html

That's what happens when a piano is lubed with anabolic steroids rather than ProTek.

I was curious about what a spinet was:

"spin·et
/ˈspinit/
Noun
A small harpsichord with the strings set obliquely to the keyboard, popular in the 18th century.
A type of small upright piano"

SO, are both correct terms? A spinet is a small harpsichord, AND a small piano-- or do you technically have to call the later a 'spinet piano' to make a distinction?

Nothing wrong here, except that anyone using search won't find this one, because the seller didn't use the word piano in the title.

In today's age, a spinet will be a small vertical piano. It is generally shorter than a console model and has a different type of action. Only in musician circles, especially in early music performance, will the term be understood as a type of harpsichord.

It is one of those words whose usage has evolved.

We suspected that Baldwin had been on the cutting edge at times, but a removable soundboard? Who would have thought?

The removable soundboard is impressive. However it may not be as good as the iron soundboards that are sometimes advertised on Craigslist!

I Love It !!!

That's a great price too. It would be perfect for a powder room off of a teaching studio.

An impressive work of art, sadly relegated to the funnies thread.

He obviously didn't look up the definition of "solid" before writing this ad. Yuck!
