Beautiful 1918 Taber Fitzgerald full-size upright piano that has just undergone reconditioning.
Pure, timeless design that was masterfully built with high-end old growth tiger oak. This quality of wood doesn't exist anymore, no matter how much you spend on a new piano. This old growth creates a timber of sound that is unmatched in today's world...must hear for yourself.
