My 10 year old daughter is taking piano lessons. I am trying to get her a baby grand piano. I saw a used J Strauss and Son Baby Grand. Is this brand a decent one ? does it have a resell value? what would be a fair price to pay for it?

Without more information it is impossible to even guess an answer to your question...even from the experts here, which I am not...

The piano looks new but it is an used 2004 baby grand piano brand name J Strauss & Son. Thats all what I know and asking price is above 3k. Is that a fair price for this piano? Could I get a better piano for that budget 3K?
Thanks for your reply

I would suggest you to check out the local pawn stores in your area. J Strauss is usually available there at really low price as compared to other stores. The price can vary from one store to other.

A George Steck could be a new piano made in Asia, or an old piano made in the US or Germany. More information is needed.

If you were going to buy a Chevrolet sedan this weekend and wanted to know the value, nobody could tell you that without more information, either.
