I've adopted a new family member. He is in the form of an overstrung upright piano!I've been wanting a piano for years now but lack of funds and sapce have been hindering me. Just recently I was informed about a piano that was being sold by an elderly lady that my Grandma knew. For £200 I managed to snap up this beauty, a 6 octave Bentley cottage piano made in 1970. On inspection the piano was like new and had been tuned every year since it was born. The old lady was the only owner. The piano was delivered to my home today. But Unfortunately I cannot see it until the weekend because I live at university. After recent research into Bentley pianos I have found that it may be worth up to 5 times more than what I payed for it. But I'm not selling. Should I feel guilty that I purchased it for the price i did?

Congratulations for your piano.You know it all makes sense now(?)..you dissapearing for a few days,etc etc. If you've got your hands on that piano..you should not sell it.Except if you have no money to buy food for your cats :)) I admire everyone who has a piano not as "another piece of furniture" but actually use it to make MUSIC! SO..i say :stick to that piano until your parents decide to sell it(neighbours were complaining,police officers from Ireland heard about you talent to play the piano,etc)
