Piano shawls (manton de manila) were the preferred method for this effect in the past. As least they were removable is you got tired of the effect.

An unmissable opportunity for investment! Move quickly or some of the greedy dealers on the forum will snap up this "diamond in the rough".

As with everything why don't people realise that if a piano, or anything else, is offered free or at a nominal charge- that is exactly what it is worth?

I look at craigslist piano listings just because you never know...

Anyway, this showed up. I can't begin to imagine what their idea of "bad shape" might be.

That owner is making a bad mistake. He should hold onto that piano for another two hundred years until it's a bonifide antique. Then he could get $800 for it!

I just HAD to click on the ad when I saw the sentence "Had been converted from a Grand to an Upright in the 50's."

Everything in this thread is 404.

Please, if you're going to post a joke, at least let us hear it.

Maybe craiglist removes ads after a certain period of time. Much of these were 404. I was looking forward to more funny stuff.
