Good morning to all. The purchase of a used grand piano is on my shopping list and am

asking for the opinion of anyone in this group about a Samick SG-185 grand piano. It is for sale by a dealer. I haven't played in 50 years so I'm not in need of a Steinway, although that would be nice, but the price is a bit much. I don't want one with player discs or other gadgets. I just want a plain, good sounding grand piano that also doubles as a piece of living room furniture. I listened to the dealer play this piano on a short sale video and it sounded good. I think he said the year built was 1999. I can find out for sure if that's important. He said it was a wet sand casting and spruce board. I've done as much on-line research as I can find on this piano but there's not a lot available, so I'm turning to this group.

I'll be off line for about an hour but appreciate all responses, suggestions, and cautionary tales you can share, including brands I should stay away from. The dealer is a third generation piano dealer in the valley.

Thanks.
