This instrument was built during the years that are considered to be the Golden Age of Steinway manufacturing. These were the years when Steinway was producing some of the best sounding pianos in their history. It was totally rebuilt at the Steinway factory in 1995. The rebuild included new soundboard, bridges, pinblock, restringing, damper felt, damper back-action, hammers, shanks, flanges, backchecks, wippens, keytops, key bushings and cabinet refinishing.
This piano is owned by a professional pianist and musician. It has received regular tuning and maintenance through the years and it has been tuned and voiced recently.
The tone of this piano is bold and powerful. The action is even and balanced from bass to treble with good control from pianissimo to forte.
Steinway no longer offers this model in its lineup, however it does manufacture a Model O which is the same size as the Model L. The list price for a brand new Model O is $83,300. At less than half the cost of new, save thousands with this totally rebuilt model. Matching bench is included.
