|Comment||Wow, thank you, Mr. Onesti for your very prompt and definitive response! I did find a few nearby RPT's via your link, but after discussing it with my husband, we agreed that -- based on your unequivocal opinion -- it really would not be worth paying anyone to "check out" a piano that really wouldn't be worth buying anyway, even if it wasn't in need of any up-front repairs. So you have saved us a good bit of time, money, and emotional investment in pursing an instrument that would not be a good choice for our family. Again, thanks.|
