This piano is not cosmetically flawless which explains the unusually low price we are asking for this piano. If cosmetic perfection is your most important consideration, then keep shopping. But, if you want to save thousands of dollars off the typical amount we would charge for a walnut Steinway M this age, and are less particular about cosmetic perfection, then this is your piano! “Under the hood”, where it really counts, this piano received all new Steinway hammers, shanks, flanges, and whippens several years before we acquired it. Otherwise, it is all original and remains in excellent mechanical condition. It has a rich tone for its size, a large dynamic range, and a supple and responsive keyboard. This piano will provide many years of enjoyment for its lucky new owner. Could that be you?
