Save your money for something that more closely resembles a piano.Anything under 5 ft is a waste of money,especially at 81 years old. \:\(

please no! please no! Don't do it!

nearly 40 years ago my parents upgraded my Wurlitzer spinet to a 4 6" Wurlitzer player grand. They paid $175. They got taken...

Your piano is likely worse than that. If I had no money in the world and it was offered free, it might be worth it. To pay $2,000 for such an instrument...is madness...

those are the facts, now for my opinion...don't do it.
