Technically you are correct. Great analogy. But this doesn't alter the fact that it too is not the real thing.

Here's a funny one I saw today in the Nashville Craigslist ads. http://nashville.craigslist.org/msg/2464729796.html
For when this cl listing expires, the ad is for a Lester Low Back Spinner piano. I guess it was the for runner to the Sit and Spin.

Near the top of today's Ebay listing's is a Lester spinet with
"all three pedals and seat" for just ONE MILLION dollars.

Perhaps a attempt by the seller to get more views?

Here's a real deal:

This one is still in tune, well, maybe except where the hammer is broken off, we can't be sure about that one.
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/msg/2456237064.html

Better hurry, at only $2000 this one will go fast:

I don't get how something can be a "fullsize Miniature." crazy

Here is a recent ad from my neck of the woods which claims their spinet piano has 38 keys. http://seattle.craigslist.org/est/msg/2491364011.html

Player Piano - $3,000
http://bellingham.craigslist.org/msg/2452798972.html

"I have a late 1800's early 1900's golden solid oak player piano for sale. I have no rolls of music, they have been lost in a long move. Beautifull piece of furniture and works just fine. My Mom has not room in her retirement home for this piano and I don't either. I would love to see somone enjoy it as much as my mother did. If you know anything about players then I would love to hear from you or, you could just buy it. So, So heavy that it is a three man show to mve it. It is on a ground floor and has wheels thank goodness for that. This piano is one of a kind. When I took the picks I did not polish it up so it is dull in the picks If interested parties only would like to see it I can show it to you at your convienence."

I don't think the pictures help out this ad at all.

Sometimes the less said, the better. You can get more interest that way.

One time I had a hard time selling a car on the local "tradio." I gave all the info, and nobody called. So I starting giving less and less info in hopes that someone would call wanting to know more. Still no luck. Finally, I advertised it as a brand new battery with a car attached. Yep, then I was able to sell it!

Baldwin Acrosonic - only $2400. You would think they could have at least thrown in the moving fee.

Lowballer excuses and my replies:

1. "I'm tight on cash"...you shouldn't be buying pianos.

2. "I'm a starving college student"...buy ramen and throw in an egg...very filling. Buy a cheap electronic keyboard. Fits better in your Scion or Honda anyway.

3. "I'm retired and on a tight budget"...see lowballer excuse #1.

4. "$1 CASH, today"...I ONLY take cash. You can pay by credit card via paypal but you pay ALL fees and I wait for funds to clear before you take delivery. No money orders, wooden nickels, magic beans or Nigerian wire money transfers for a billion dollars and you give me and extra $50K for my "troubles". Or lotto winnings that you can't get out of the EU for whatever reason.

5. "my Homeboy said this piano is only worth $1"...your homeboy is probably as stupid as you.

6. "my Homeboy said he'll sell me this EXACT same model of piano for $1 but I'd rather buy from you for [insert lowball price but above $1]"...help your homeboy out first or else he might shoot you.

7. "would you consider renting it?"...yes. $1/per day and $1200 non refundable restocking fee.

8. "take a picture of the inside, the bottom, every single key, raise Chopin from the dead to play it, record it, put it on YouTube, get a billion hits, and I'll maybe call you."...no stop wasting my time.

9. "can you meet me halfway between Bakersfield so I can 'look' at it"...see #8.

10. "payment plan?"...yes. ONE payment installment plan. AKA "INSTANT layaway" AKA "cash and carry".

"Prior to my ownership it was the piano that was used in the Old South Church in Weymouth, MA and made it through the fire of 1989. Its notably burnt finish and warm tone is a great addition to any home."

Piano in mint condition by Baldwin. Solid Mahogany case, solid brass sound board. It has been in my family since 1930. It is in perfect condition and very well cared for. It needs tuning.

These folks have ALL the bases covered:

This piano is an upright grand square in working condition and measures 49.5" tall.

Pretty case, though... http://reno.craigslist.org/atq/2677960707.html
