I sold my piano to buy an electric, but this followed me home:
Presented for your consideration, a "Lester 64 Spinet" built sometime between 1940 and 1960. I found it on Craigslist locally, and bought it for the asking price of $50 (with bench).
It is beautifully constructed, of solid wood with twin strings and traditional hammers. The entire structure is underpinned by a cast aluminum frame and it has two pedals. When the top is fully closed it creates a small table, 32" high. They were originally sold for people who had apartments, and it weighs around 100 lbs.
Anyone ever try tuning their own piano?
