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?

Cripes, looks like a piece of dental equipment. The bench looks ready to swallow you up any moment.

My manners prevent me from telling you what I thnk it looks like. :roll:

Only new management would allow such distinguished names as Shimmel and Bosendorfer to make such ... "instruments."

It makes me feel the exact same way as when I first learned Porshe was making an SUV. WHAT! :evil:

It does sort of look like a tooth. Eddy, does your unmentionable item vibrate perhaps? No....don't tell me...I'm too delicate! :lol:
But I would not turn down a Porshe SUV if someone wanted to give me one. Wonder if Porshe has designed a grand piano like Audi did (another ugly piano a few posts up from here)?

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:



Perhaps I have a problem, but if the sound is quality, the look is not a concern. : :?

It's monstrously ugly yet makes a spectacular statement about bad taste..

Looks are most definitely a concern! Anyone playing this horribly ugly piano would look like a fool and not be taken seriously. However, the other way around - ugly person playing nice-looking piano - is just fine! :lol:
