I have a Wm. Knabe & Co. upright piano - Mignonette model,

Customer Question

I have a Wm. Knabe & Co. upright piano - Mignonette model, serial #127103. I have had the piano for over 40 years and I, unfortunately, need to sell it due to downsizing my current home. I would like to get an appraisal, please. Thank you.
JA: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Is there anything else the musical instrument appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: My grandparents purchased it for me, so I know it was not new at the time. I am not sure the exact age of the piano.

Thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. It will be my pleasure to help you, I am working on this for you now.

Has your piano been regularly tuned and maintained? What is the full height of your piano measured from the floor to the closed top lid please?

Have any of the internal mechanics been replaced or restored over the years or is it all still as originally built?
