Some sound advice from another site (
"A GOOD used piano is FOUR times better than a Cheap New Piano. It Sounds better, It Plays better, It Tunes better, It Holds its value better.

"There is only one rule in buying a piano. Buy quality. It does not matter if it is new or used. In fact a good used piano could last for decades and save you thousands of dollars. A cheap new piano will never hold its value and may struggle to hold its tune."
