The owner wants it for $2500 and I feel it is overpriced. Could anyone tell me how much it is really worth? Thanks a lot!

The M450 was apromotional model with a lighter backpost assembly. I think $2500 would be reasonable from a dealer and with a warranty. From a private party, as is, $1800 would be reasonable.

Agree that 1800 is top dollar. When I was searching for an upright two weeks ago I saw many of these in mint condition asking right about this number. I passed on all because I don't think they will hold their value.
But I am a newbie at pianos, so take this with a big grain of salt (though I am getting a PhD in business, so I know about $)
