Default Craigslist win...

Been looking for a piano for the wife, and ran across this gem... I swear only on CL.

KAWAI BABY GRAND PIANO INVOLVED IN CRIME SCENE

Canary Yellow Baby Grand Piano made by Kawai. PLEASE NOTE: MY MOTHER WAS MURDERED WHILE PLAYING THIS PIANO. AS SUCH IT WAS INVOLVED IN A CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION AND STILL HAS GREEN STAINS FROM WHERE THE POLICE USED AMINO BLACK TO LOOK FOR FINGERPRINTS. The piano will need to be refinished - or can make for an interesting conversation piece. THE PHOTO IS OF THE PIANO IN ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION - IT DOES NOT SHOW THE DAMAGE LEFT BY THE CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.

The piano has been in storage since the murder and will need to be tuned. You will be SOLELY responsible for moving it from the storage location.

Serious inquiries only. Please email for more information.

I wouldn't buy it. Once those things get a taste for blood you just can't trust them anymore.

What the ad doesn't say is the son is selling it from prison.

That sounds like a pretty good deal. Man, I can really kill it on the piano.

lol wow. Well I guess he got it out in the open. Better than someone coming over to look at it and being like "Oh what is this stain from?", "Well, my mother was murdered while playing this. So, it's from that..."

How about $1250 cash in hand and you throw in a pair of your moms old panties?
He wasn't too keen on the offer.

Oh ****. When that piano gets pushed out of a 2nd story window and lands on your head, you'll know why.
