    Is this not one of the ugliest pianos you have ever seen? It looks to me like the piano might gobble you up if you sit there. :shock:

    It is indeed the most obnoxious and atrocious looking thing. Straight out of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.

    I love it. And just imagine you can play as poorly as you want, or need to, because no one will notice. They will be too busy gawking at the piano.

    Actually it likes the head of one of those Chinese masks or of a Chinese dragon.

    It looks like what Alice might see in Wonderland.

    That is truly amazing! I can't begin to imagine what it must sound like. Why did you buy it?

    No way would I sit at that piano. I still think it looks like a monster.

    I didn't! :lol: :lol: That's so funny, Alexander. Where did you get that idea?

    Looks like a piano after a bad "acid trip".

    Okay...we have a regular plain boxy upright piano mistakenly sent to Wonka's chocolate factory - Willy covered the piano with chocolate and then forwarded it to Wonderland where someone slipped it some bad acid. Alice got a hold of a large Chinese mask, put it on the piano, and the piano becomes the monster piano. :p

    You guys are making me crave some chocolate. There happens to be a bowl of Hershey kisses sitting about five feet away from me right now - may have to indulge. Breakfast! :lol:

    Yuck, I don't like that one either. Looks like it's made of plastic and looks too cold.

    A good runner-up. I'n not sure I would not prefer the chocolate one over this abomination.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the brushed aluminum legs were repeated on the back side instead of that big black thing (which would maybe help direct sound out from the underside of soundboard.

    They both look like they came from the devil's workshop. Dreadful!

    Just saw this on Ebay. Not an ugly piano at all, but according to the description, "the item may have some signs of cosmetic wear..."

    Maybe that's because the piano is outside...duh!! :roll: :lol:

    I don't like this one, either. Looks like the cockpit of a space ship, doesn't it?
