Thanks everyone for all your input that last few months. Today I finally purchased a 2001 Estonia 190 and it is FANTASTIC!! I've waited for 30 years, saved up for 18 months, and now I finally have a beautiful instrument. So happy and grateful!!!

I've yet to play one of the modern Estonias but I've been dying to try the 190 since I've been hearing nothing but great reviews about this piano.
Yes, get some pictures up here please!

Voiceteacher: Congratulations!

We long noticed Estonia owners to be as special as the piano.

What contributed to your decision in the end?
