Re: Converting upright piano into cabinet
As Phil said, it may be worthwhile to check the value of the piano first.
The value of a piano (or any instrument, for that matter) is not in its appearance, but its tonal qualities. An ugly piano with a beautiful tone will be many times more valuable than a pretty piano that sounds like banging on a metal garbage can.
Simply being out of tune is not a measure of tonal quality. Any good piano can be brought into tune by an experienced piano technician, and the tonal quality can be judged even when out of tune.
If the sound board is cracked, the piano is junk.
