Eeeww. Who would ever buy a piano with a person's name on the fallboard? I just can't think of any good one which does.

mahermusic, I am so sorry you made such a horrible mistake. As a fellow forumite, I'd be happy to make the sacrifice and take that Charles Walter off your hands. What time shall I have the movers pick it up?

No need to thank me.
