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.

What is the name of your piano on the lid over the keys? Prior to needing tuning now 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?

Thanks for the serial number.

I see that you have asked for a phone call. I cannot call you right now but I can carry on to complete your appraisal on here with more details for you to see.

The serial number gives a year of build of 1961. Based on that and the details in your initial question I would assume that the internal mechanics are as originally built, is that correct? Has it been fairly regularly tuned? One last question is, what is the full height measured from the floor to the top of the closed top lid?
