USED BUT BEAUTIFUL!

We are selling a Steinway / Boston GP163 Performance Edition baby grand piano.  This piano was manufactured in the 2001 timeframe (serial number 138858).  
  • It plays excellent, has no noticeable scratches or dings, all keys play well.  
  • Recently tuned and serviced.  
  • We received it from the original owner, who purchased it new.  
  • It is also equipped with the PianoDisc system (228CFX/PCD), which is one of the top of the line piano players on the market.  
  • Includes a custom made quilted cover.

This piano sells for $19,000 - $20,000 new, and I see them used for $10,000 - $12,000.  We have priced this piano to sell, and are willing to negotiate, but are not going to accept a low-ball price.  

I am listing as "No shipping - local pickup" but of course I will work with the buyer to assist in shipping the piano to your location.  There is a local piano moving company here in Wilmington that can prepare the piano for shipping.  Buyer will be responsible for arranging shipment, and paying the shipping company.  

It's a beautiful instrument - the only reason we are considering selling is that it takes up a lot of space on our stage, and we could invest the proceeds in other area's of the worship ministry here. 

Description:
The Steinway designed Boston Piano — long unrivaled in its class and unmatched in value — has been significantly enhanced with the introduction of the new Performance Edition. The Boston Performance Edition features improvements in materials, specifications, and performance never before seen in the mid-price range.

A maple inner rim, found in only the finest pianos, increases structural integrity and improves the tone by isolating the soundboard. The patented Octagrip™ Pinblock provides a smoother pin turn and more consistent pin torque, leading to a more precise tuning.

The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.

In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.

The Boston grand piano offers a larger soundboard in comparison to other pianos of the same length, due to its innovative “wide tail” design. This wider construction of the case means that a 5’ 10” Boston grand has the same soundboard area as a typical 6’ 2” grand piano, creating the power, richness, and feel of playing a much larger piano.

Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of Steinway & Sons — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.

Fine veneers underlie the elegance of the Boston pianos — available in walnut and mahogany satin or polished finishes, as an alternative to the classic ebonized — all designed to delight the eye and enhance the player’s experience.

At 5' 4" (163cm), this grand piano is small enough to fit in any home, but possesses the sound of a much larger grand, thanks to its wide-tail design.

Height: 102 cm (40”)
Length: 163 cm (5’ 4”)
Width: 151 cm (59 3/4”)
Net Weight: 322 kg (708 lb)
