Thanks for you question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. I will ask you to complete the star rating and payment after I have completed the question for you.

The serial number gives a year of build of 1918, so your piano is around 97 years old. Can I please have the longest length measured from the front edge of the casework in front of the keys to the farthest edge of the top lid over the leg?

Has this piano been regularly tuned and maintained? Do you know if the internal mechanical parts have been restored or is it all still as originally built?
