Thanks for your question Vince. 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 Ellington serial number records run from the number 1000 in 1893 to the year of 1930 when the first number for that last year starts at 63000, so I am unable to associate the number you have given with a year of production; could you check this for me please? I see it say jpg - if you could attach any pictures, particularly of the internal mechanics on here using the paperclip or the +Add button on the menu bar in the reply section, that would be very helpful. 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?
