YAMAHA PIANO FOR SALE OLX
YAMAHA PIANO FOR SALE OLX, by Manila Pianos Inc. We will never sell anything like this, trust me.
It is horrible how Philippine people get cheated on sometimes when it comes to buying a Yamaha or other piano. Today is February 5, 2015 and we find a Yamaha Piano for sale for P 70,000.00 with the following horrible pictures:
Picture 1: It shows a Yamaha logo and the plate is repainted with the wrong color paint, telling me immediately that job that has been done was cheap, not only that, it was also done by people that had no idea about pianos. The paint may start to fall off soon, however it looks ok for now, but will soon reveal problems under it like cracks or rust. I can safely assume this piano is VERY old and was possibly used and well abused in a Japanese school or bar. ========================================================================================
Picture 2: Reckless spaying of paint over the strings as well as the pins. An indication that the people that did this as well as the people selling this a) don’t care about customers or b) really don’t know what they are doing. This kind of pianos should not be sold because strings will break, pins will get lose within very short time and it also means that the piano was not rebuilt the proper way. One MUST remove the action, strings and pins BEFORE spraying the piano plate and then put it back in. New pins and strings that is. and that cost serious money, more than the asking price for this Yamaha piano. It is no wonder Yamaha hates to sale of their second hand pianos because of this kind of customer deception, it looks bad on them too.
Picture 3 and 4: Action with all original worn out parts. Even the Yamaha label indicates that this Yamaha piano is old, the back checks are all in a different position meaning the piano was not regulated and probable the inside wasn’t touched by anyone closely resembling an accomplished piano technician, The felt is old, green, which indicate the piano is from 1950-1960 and the felt looks pretty warn out. The hammers are old and worn out and the spacing of them looks like someone went though it with a knife. There also seems no felt left on the hammers to speak of. The person buying this piano will purchase a non piano and will pay P 70,000.00 too much. As you can see the M1 is also fronted by the word “no” which indicates this piano was made in Koera and not in Japan. I wish this kind of “piano” would not be sold anymore, it is bad for business. VERY BAD FOR BUSINESS.
