Question about Music
What is the year of serial # and what price can I realistically ask for it. It needs tuning.
Well my friend, not knowing exactly what model this is, makes this a difficult question to answer as the market for upright pianos is really shrinking, but that's not to say it has no value. I can tell you that all pianos need tuning after being moved even down a flight of stairs so don't worry about that detracting from the value. More details would be helpful in answering this question.

If you are marginally interested in the process of tuning the piano, and your main motivation is to save the cost of a professional tuning, bite the bullet and engage the services of a qualified tuner. Trying to do it yourself will become overwhelming very quickly. If, however, you are genuinely interested in the skill of tuning, and willing to invest the time and effort to become good at it, then get yourself a star tipped tuning hammer and some mutes (eBay will do) and start to see what you can do to make your piano sound better. Begin by getting the whine out of individual notes by tuning the strings to each other. Search out the "Every which way you can" tuning article by Kent Swafford on your favorite search engine for an introduction to aural tuning. If you're inclined to start out with an electronic tuning aid, check out Tunelab Pro - a free, fully functional demo is available for download to your laptop. Remember, however, that an electronic aid only shows you whether you've hit your target for any given string. Learning how to finess the physical motions of tuning so that the string stays on target for more than a few minutes is another process altogether. If your first couple of forays into trying to tune don't drive you around the bend, then consider finding a qualified piano technician who would be willing to provide lessons for a fee. If your interest holds up, investigate the resources for learning that are available through the Piano Technicians Guild. Their source books and monthly journals are second to none, but unless you are committed enough to the process to become an associate member, the non-member prices for materials are pretty high. "Piano Servicing" by Reblitz is another excellent source of knowledge. It might be in your local library.

Testimonial: "This information is exactly what I was looking to learn.Thank you for specific references, guidance on getting started & experienced opinion / warning"
If you will turn the instrument upside down you will find a date of production somewhere. My CLP-50 has been built in 1985 for example, I discovered in 2006. (I have forgotten the exact location of this date.)

Is the board missing? If not, just repair the board. Here is link to manual close to your unit:
Scroll down to near bottom and wait for "download your manual" in lower right corner. Click to download. This is the 131 model but should be VERY similar to your unit.
