A Harpsichord, it's a miracle anybody is selling that - it looks amazing. I understand your concerns about the space and money though...
Maybe you can talk to your friend to preserve it for you? Those instruments are at a premium, and that price is really ok.
Perhaps you can find a solution!

I could try to work something out with her. Part of me wishes that she would keep it as an heirloom, since it belonged to her mother who recently passed away last month. Her mother left the house and all it's contents to my friend, and she is going to sell the house after she sells the furniture that is inside (or most of it at least). So that includes the harpsichord.

I'm working on a pedal board that I built, I'm going to be upholstering a nice light blue paisley pattern to the frame, It's going to have it's own power strip and everything! So excited, can't wait to take pictures of it when I finish!

I play guitar, keys, and mandolin. I really like fender's strat and tele. The way Gilmour uses the tele in his Dogs solos is amazing. Of course, a lot of Gilmour's tone comes from his fingers, not his gear.

I also play classical guitar, for which I prefer a rosewood body for its resonating properties. It's best if the guitar body resonates at 440 Hz so that songs in Am have full sound. You can also sing into the sound hole to make it resonate which sounds cool.

I don't really know much about keyboard gear, I've always just used what's available (and often been disappointed in the cheap sounds of electric equipment). I've only ever owned one mandolin and it's a fender.

I really can;t see that having that huge of a difference on final recorded sound. If anything it would MAYBE be slightly noticeable. If you had some really high quality stereo mics and recorded it perfectly perhaps but normal usage? No way. And it wouldnt have an Am sound it would just be the note A, which would be very applicable in a few keys. For instance Amaj and its relative minor key F#minor, or Aminor and its relative C maj.

Well certainly the body and the strings resonate off each other, but it would probably be subtle in the final recording... but as the musician holding and playing the guitar, I appreciate a resonating body.

You're right about A major (I just don't play major on classical), but it's not as impactful on other keys that merely have A in them. Resonation carries harmonics from the harmonic series, and you will find that the first members of the harmonic series (besides the tonic and the octave, of course) are the fifth and the fourth, the next is the minor seventh and then the major second. So there's diminishing returns as you drift away from any scale with A that doesn't have D, E, and G. Though at this point, it's not as relevant.

The major thing really is that you tend to spend more time on A in an A scale. And the fact that it resonates so fully reinforces it as the tonic. It can be a little strange when your subdominant is more robust than your tonic.

It's about 100 years old and in good condition. It's fucking beautiful. This is the picture she put on the advertisement:



Honestly, I am pining so hard for this instrument right now. But I don't have the money and I don't have the room.

Harpsichord
Damn. She's decided not to sell it yet. Yet. Argh.

Alright, my Carvin DC135T. What a great guitar. I had the coil split and phase put in. With the 3 individual switches I have 12 p/u configs. Neck tru design makes it so stable. Carvin. They have always done me right

Awwww yeah, finally got my resonator guitar. Specifically a Gretsch Alligator Biscuit G9240. Another part of the Gretsch Roots Series and an amazing value for what you get. The sound is super crisp and amazingly loud, matching any dreadnaught acoustic guitar I've ever played. I can't wait to get a bottleneck guitar slide and start doing some slide blues.
