The 5'8" studio grand piano is one of 2 true "Baltimore Scale" designs.How do you recreate a hand-made masterpiece from America's Golden Era of piano making? While many of the original instruments are still in use, underlying manufacturing designs were also instilled into the reproduction. The sand cast plates were recreated. The hardwood rims, consisting of alternating layers of Maple & Oak were recreated. Even the same species of spruce was used for the soundboard - Eastern White spruce sourced from Bolduc in Canada.As in the 1920's, Knabe sourced the best action parts were sourced from America; in this 2007 Knabe piano, the best action parts were sourced from Renner in Germany. Due to price increases, a new Knabe WKG58 will not have a full Renner action...making this gently used pre-owned Knabe even more desirable.The WKG models are designated Concert Artist for their level of quality, musicality, durability, and beauty.
