I am wondering what you all think about the Young Chang pianos in general? Poor tone? Poor build quality when new?

There's a used G-150 Baby Grand Piano 4'11" and I'm wondering if it's worth even bothering to go and play it.

Best to contact a local technician of your choice and pay for the inspection/appraisal. This person can view the instrument in person.

This is impossible to determine without an on-site inspection by a qualified piano technician:

Odd question from someone who has been at piano world since 2004, has owned a M&H in the past, was a dealer, cleared out their profile, and asks a naive question.

Who are you a sock puppet for?

If we believe a remark to be disingenuous, there is a better way of approach than ridicule.
