Customer Question

Our family inherited my mother's Steinway grand piano. I am not sure of the size. I guess it is at least 6' long. It dates from around 1920 it has not been rebuilt & yet it has an unbelievable tone & sound. It is now in State College, PA & is going to be shipped to Orlando FL. I NEED TO KNOW THE VALUE OF THIS PIANO.

Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. Until I have completed the answer for you please be sure not to click on any of the star rating or payment buttons. I will ask you to complete the star rating and payment process later.

This could be an 'O' model which was introduced in 1920 at 5 foot 10 inches long or an 'L' which was introduced in 1923 at 5 foot 10½ inches long. Prior to the tuning 15 years ago was it regularly tuned?
