1912 absolutely beautiful sound from this baby grand piano, I am nor sure of the wood, but I believe it is walnut or cherry. In about 1999, this piano was completely re-strung with new strings, tuning pins and bushings. The plate was re-finished. The keys were re-bushed in the fronts and the key buttons were replaced. All new felts in the keybed. The hammers and shanks were all replaced, as well as any felt that needed replacing in the action. The exterior, with the exception of a few dings that hide under the lid folding back, is in near pristine condition. Original ivory. The sound is beautiful and clear. Just tuned December 2018.
