Hey.. Maybe if I'm ever around your area, I can swing by and check out the piano.. Are you in LA/Hollywood?

I've been vacinated for PAS...you can't aquire a piano if you have no place to put it. If I had somewhere to put more, I would probably be infected.

I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

I had that vaccination, but the disease developed immunity. I found another place to put pianos, and now I have full blown PAS again...

I definitely have had PAS for some time now. The first time I found a second piano that I wanted, it was an upright Steinway in very nice cosmetic condition---and it was free. Sadly, my wife stopped me from getting it.
The good news is that apparently even my wife may have symptoms now! :-)
Just last month I found a 1937 Baldwin L for only a couple hundred dollar and I was on my way to picking it up when the niece to whom I was going to give it (she was interested in rebuilding it with me) got a Steinway upright as a surprise wedding gift while she was on her honeymoon, and suddenly didn't have room to put this grand, too. Two days later, my wife had an idea about giving it to the school where our children attend (the school loved the idea!), but by that time the owners found a school in their neighborhood which agreed to take it. I couldn't believe how disappointed my wife was---even though she fully realized I was going to be working nights and weekends to restore that piano *at the school*.

I would say that qualifies her for the condition, don't you think?


(edit 2/21)
P.S. Couldn't help adding a picture or two. Boy, sure hope it has found a wonderful home.

You know you have PAS when you just purchased a piano and are still looking at piano sale listings afterwards.

Steve in Cincy, that's awesome! Your wife is really cool.

Gatsbee, that's how I know I have a really severe case of the disease. I've been known to look at piano listings on my phone while purchasing a piano and while watching the movers move it.

Some people read the newspaper first thing in the mornings… I check out the Piano World Forum and then surf Craigslist and eBay for any Piano bargains nearby.

Guess my prognosis is not good… smile

Rick - I hate to tell you this, but all of your friends at PW are well aware that you are suffering in Stage IV of PAS.

Enjoy and relish the symptoms.
