Hi I was wondering if a baby grand Kohler and Campbell SKG 500 for $2,600 a good deal to buy? It is about 15 years old and is an great condition. But does not have any warranties.

I am buying this piano for my children who have played 3 years. One child is talented and our piano teacher recommends an acoustic over a digital piano. Any thoughts?

Wow, I'm thinking that is a great price for that piano, if indeed it is good condition.

I doubt very seriously it has any remaining factory warranty. Major warranty issues are few and far in between anyway.

Best of luck to you!

Rick

The SKG 500 are a good average quality piano that with good prep and voicing will be good unless your child is practicing more than an hour a day. If that's the case, a better level of piano is needed. The price is good, have a tech check it out, and get it prepped - it likely needs it.

Kohler & Campbell pianos of this era and series (SKG) are manufactured via Samick in the South Korean factory. Some have solid spruce soundboards and a variation of case styling compared to regular Samick stencils. As Bob stated, they are a good average quality piano. If this quality level piano meets your needs, the price will surely.
