Hi,
I am looking for some advice on a piano that I am going to look at on Saturday morning. I played piano for about 13 years, but stopped 6 years ago and haven't really played since. I have always loved the look of a grand piano and would like to start playing again - as a hobby, not professionally. I live in an apartment, so an acoustic grand really isn't an option for me. I like the idea of a digital grand because of the volume control/headphone option, but also because of the "look" of a grand. I found a local piano store that is selling a 2003 Yamaha DGT-7 Digital Baby Grand (4'11") with Disklavier added. They're selling it for $6,500 with a "rent to own" option. Any advice on the price or what I should look for when viewing it on Saturday? Like I said earlier, this is more of a hobby so if it's not the BEST piano, I'm not too concerned. Any input would be greatly appreciated. [email][/email] [url=][/url] [img:center][/img] [img][/img] [img]http://www.pianomill.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/yamahadisc21.jpg[/img]

You should re-post your question on the Digital Piano forum. A couple of regulars over there owned both the GranTouch action and the current AvantGrand action and could give you some feedback.

I got my DGT2 not long ago for $1500. I posted the similar question on DP forum, and almost all replies said I was crazy for buying a 10 year old DP...

I went ahead and bought it anyway, and very pleased with it so far. Althought the piano lacks a bit of dynamic, the action feels really good. And, thats really what I need for my apartment.

However, for $6500, I think it is too much. You can get a N1 already for that price...
