Hello!! I play piano and I am looking for an acoustic im looking to spend about 1 thousand. So i was wondering if this piano looks good? Its Kohler and Campbell and they claim it to be only 8 years old... It looks great but im looking for a better opinion... Here is the link to the piano!

It appears to be an entry level 42" console. Nowadays, a new one would cost somewhere between $2500-3500. It might work for a beginner with a limited budget, assuming it plays well, holds a tuning, and sounds good to your ear. You may want to try a variety of instruments/sizes/prices, and then go back and try this one.

Be sure you "fit" under the instrument if you're tall, and check that the instrument is adequately stable, as it doesn't have legs, like taller more expensive models do.

The archives of the Piano Buyer site has a review of entry-level consoles you may find useful.
