First time buyer - Boston 118S?
« on: November 25, 2020, 10:19:06 AM »
Hello!

I'm considering a buying a used upright Boston 118S from 2014. So far it seems like the best fit for me in terms of what I can afford and what I'm hoping to get out of a piano. However there is still work to be done on this piano as the gallery has just received it.

I'm struggling to figure out if I should end my search now and buy it, or if I should wait to let them finish servicing it and then decide whether or not to make an offer (and in the meantime, continue exploring my options further).

Any advice on either this particular model or how to approach the buying situation? I liked the piano generally, and don't have major concerns about the Steinway dealership's ability to fix what I noticed off about the piano - mainly just some isolated damper issues in the bass. I think my main concern holding me back is that I'm still worried about if it will suit my needs for more advanced repertoire what with the nature of an upright's action, even if it is better than average.
