I'm still in shock! I went by the piano store today, fully intending to dicker about a used piano. However, he only had two used pianos left in stock (in fact, he only had two new pianos left in stock) because he has to be out of the store by Wednesday - the building has sold and he's retiring.
I left after having purchased a brand new piano! I still can't get over it. I know it was a good buy (I bought it for just a few dollars less than his wholesale price); and it comes with a ten year warranty and he'll pay the delivery charge - it's just that it's a whole lot more money than I intended to spend. I'm very thankful for my line of credit - and I'll have to go to the bank tomorrow to ensure that I transfer enough money in my account to cover the cheque I wrote.
The brand name is Young Chang; it's a cherry wood colour and has engraved wood on the front panel - it's beautiful! They'll deliver it on Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.
Now, do you know anyone who wants a used piano? Good for beginners?
