Customer Question
I have an Emerson...

I have an Emerson piano company square grand Boston

Expert's Assistant: 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. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

My great grandmother owned this piano and then other family members. I would be interested to see if there was any interest. Would like to sell it

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Musical Instrument Appraiser should know?

Many keys do not work
