I really like the music stand and the look of the piano. Lister says it just needs a tuning.

No. I just happened to see the listing. I'm quite sure it needs more than just a tuning.

I'm always leery of pianos that "just need tuning"! If that's really true, the seller ought to have it tuned.

It looks too good to be true. A piano that old, if it hasn't already been done, will need restoring.

If it isn't too far away, go check it out, but have a good technician examine and evaluate it before signing the check.

If you like the touch and tone, and if it's in good condition - an 1889 Bluthner (in gray semigloss) for only $2,000 - grab it!
