The Yamaha C3 grand piano also featured on the cover for Oasis's 'Supersonic'
The piano used on Oasis‘ seminal album ‘Definitely Maybe’ has been put up for sale.
The Yamaha C3 grand piano, which also featured on the cover of the band’s single ‘Supersonic’, was listed on eBay yesterday (February 8) with a starting price of £1,000.
Writing in the item’s description on the auction site, the owners said: “We are reluctantly selling our Grand Piano as it has come to the end of it’s life as a recording instrument.”
They continued: “The piano was bought new in the late 1980s from Cranes in Cardiff and has featured on some of the best known records in the world.
“It has been well used over the years, but is still very much a playable beginner’s instrument. With 2 or 3 tunings a year, it will be stable enough for home use. For anything more, it would need a full refurb – however, the price fully reflects this. We anticipate that it would be of interest to either an Oasis super fan or someone looking for an entry level grand piano with the most interesting legacy in the country.”
The piano also bears the marks of its colourful history, with the owners noting that “it is still a stunning instrument, even with the bumps & scrapes (and red wine stains!). Each one telling the story of a moment in rock n roll!”
The bidding currently stands at £1,700 (correct at the time of writing).
