They must bang really hard on that piano to need frontal brace support.  Maybe they jump on the keybed a la Ben Folds!  Yes that's it!

I never do understand why "76 key" is the choice when you don't know.

yeah, either it's a 76 key or a 1973 model.....apparently Rhodes produced pianos only in 1954, 1973, and 1988....

No, this is a rare one from 1876...a grand time in American History:

* The US celebrates its Centennial (kudos to pianodano)
* Mark Twain writes The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
* The National League of Baseball is founded
* Alexander Graham Bell patents the "Telephone"
* The first Doorbell is designed using a "Tine"

BTW, WTF is up with these Ebay ID's like c***i???  Is this some way to mask your real ID so nobody knows your legacy as a complete ripoff artist or total asshole?

It's to protect ebay--they don't get a slice if some unscrupulous individual sees that you are the second high bidder for a spanking 1876 fiesta red piano bass signed by Alexander Graham Doorbell that ultimately sold for $1,836.27, and offers to sell you one for a mere 1,800 bucks outside the system.

Of course they say it's for your (the buyer's) protection. But it really enforces the need for sellers to pay ebay to bring them buyers.

ebay has also sued craigslist if I'm not mistaken which is absolutely hysterical and ungrounded.  Its just that they're losing business.
