Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. Please do not click RATE/ACCEPT/FEEDBACK until you have an answer/valuation.
The Baldwin R is one of the 'Medium' Sized Grand pianos. Could I have the length measured from the outside edge of the wood in front of the keys to the furthest point away from the keys on the outside edge of the main lid over the front leg please? The serial number gives a build year of 1957. Have you owned it from new and apart from the tuning within the last two years, has it been regularly tuned and maintained before that? Has it had any restoration work to the internal mechanics and the outside casework over the years or is it all still as originally built please?
