Absolutely right. We bought our daughter's piano used from a dealer who builds and repairs them, he took over the business from his father, who had taken it over from his father. The piano we bought was built in 1920-something, I'll have to go look, and it just sounds soooo good. It's a Glaser Brothers, built in Jena, Germany. The dealer did impeccable work on it and I've yet to hear another piano that sounds as goodExactly! A tonewheel hammond is electronic to begin with, and there's still nothing like the real thing.
There have been a lot of bad sounding acoustic pianos made in the last 70 years or so, but if you get any piano with some charm to it's sound, it really is something special to listen to a big wood soundboard amplify real strings in the air around your ears. Speakers don't do it.
