What should you look for when buying a used piano? From my experience I've learned that most piano buyers don't really know what they should look for when purchasing a piano new or used. I know that some don't really care. They just want to get a piano for their child to practice on and don't really spend any time checking the instrument out carefully.
I do suggest getting a technician to look at the instrument. Have the tech check all bridges for cracks or separation. Check the strings to see if any are missing and if there is a lot of rust on them. A small amount of rust or corrosion may be ok, but a large amount is not good. A piano tuner can help you with this.
The keyboard and action should be inspected for missing parts and missing felts, especially the felts under the keys. On older pianos moths or mice may have chewed them up. Same thing for the felts in the action. The action is the mechanism inside of the piano that contains all of the moving parts, including the hammers that strike the strings.
Check to see if there are any missing hammers. Also see if the felt is pulling away fron the hammer molding. Again, a piano technician will help you with these things. It's also a good idea that he or she check out how tight the tuning pins are. Loose pins or a cracked pinblock will not allow it to stay in tune or even hold a tuning in the first place.
Sometimes the instrument may be in good shape overall but have a large amount of wear from many hours of playing. The tuner will be able to tell you just how far gone it is. If the price is low and it's a really good piano then make a decision if a nearly worn out piano is good enough.for you.
Sometimes even with a lot of wear they can play on well enough for several years. Unless you are planning on playing it 5 or 6 hours a day. If only your beginner child will play it then it should serve you well. As for the exterior appearance most likely the lady of the house will make the decision about what is acceptable.
