A living room piano since new, this Steinway had one owner and was well cared for. Normally, a fine piano of this age would not be ready for restoration, but the original Steinway action in 1980 contained teflon bushings. A little research on the subject explains why this is very problematic for a performance instrument, and all new Steinway action parts were needed. Additionally, the original wood finish had faded, the color out of favor, so a new satin ebony finish makes this piano a classic once again.
The original soundboard is perfect and healthy, reconditioned for another generation of use. That said, every other mechanical part of this piano is restored with new.
