5' 7", $6,000.

Brand new Hardman grand piano finished in high luster red mahogany, this piano comes with a TEN YEAR FACTORY warranty.

It's about the same size as the old M&H I was looking at, but for $2k more, this one is brand new, so for certain there are no cracks in the soundboard.

Are these bad pianos?

As I recall they are a Chinese stencil brand that was placed pretty much at the bottom of the barrel. While it may be new I think one could find a better quality used grand than this one. But of course that is just my opinion.

You seem to be in Tucson. Maybe my friend Neil Flint RPT, knows of a great grand in your price range. Try looking him up and see what he says.

Agreed. The Yamahas are AWESOME instruments.

The actions of the C2 is a bit on the heavy side for me, but I could get used to it I'm sure.

Problem is, the last C2 I tried sold for $10k, so they are a bit more pricey for sure. People know they have good re-sale value.....
