The name Steinway enjoys nothing less than legendary status around the world, even among people who know little about pianos. They have been the standard by which all other piano makers have been measured for over 150 years. This particular Steinway M needed two new bass wires but is otherwise is all original and remains in barely-used condition with decades of solid performance ahead of it. The cosmetic condition of the cabinet is very good but not perfect, hence the lower then average price, so if performance and a lower price is more important to you than a flawless finish, you should take a serious look at this piano. For those of you who haven’t been shopping for new Steinways lately, a new ebony Steinway M sells new today for an astonishing $69,700. Ask yourself if a new Steinway looks, sounds or plays an astonishing $50K better than this piano? You already know the answer, don’t you? Plus, new Steinway pianos carry only a 5-year warranty to the original owner, while every piano we sell carries a 10-year fully transferable warranty. You don’t have to be an economist to figure out which is the smarter choice.
