1989 Wurlitzer UGLY piano - Upright - Console Pianos

The UGLY piano. OK, there, I said it.

Someone began to refinish this piano and didn't know what they were doing. (Sorry if you are that person and reading this). If you are 8 or 10 feet away, it isn't terrible; however, when you get close to it, you realize that something went awry. Anyway, it really does need refinished now. What this requires is about a gallon of stripper, a few basic supplies, a little bit of time and fresh air, and whatever type of finish you choose to put on it. Costs of all materials probably under $100. If you are a doctor, it probably isn't worth the investment of your time to refinish this (unless you are currently "sheltered in place"during the COVID-19 pandemic). If you are like me and have a few hours in the morning or evening, this is a project you can complete in a few days. 

THE GOOD NEWS: The style of the piano is actually quite nice. Queen Anne legs, a music rack with a cute little shell pattern on it....but the bench doesn't match. Sorry. The inside of the piano is in good condition. The piano plays and sounds pretty nice. SO, if you have poor eyesight, this might be the perfect piano for you....or if you are on a budget and have a little time on your hands.

The price is very reasonable and we'll even deliver it locally for free with no more than 2 or 3 stairs. 

FYI: If the finish on this piano weren't so UGLY, it would easily be a piano we'd get around $1800 for. Save yourself some $$$, have some fun on this project, it will be a good learning experience and you can add "furniture refinisher" to your resumé!

Seems like a win-win!

"Mid-America Piano had 10-12 pianos in the style I was interested in! No other dealer had that many samples on the floor to be played the same day. It really made the difference for me."
