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

The serial number gives a year of build of circa 1964. Shoninger was a name used by the National Piano Corp. which was based at***** New York until they closed in 1964, so your piano would appear to be one of the latter ones made. Do you need a value for retail purposes?

What is the height measured from the floor to the top of the closed top lid? Has your piano been regularly tuned and maintained. Have any of the internal mechanics been replaced or restored over the years or is it all still as originally built please?
