PIANO: Steinway & Sons, model M, 5’7” Grand & Bench, serial # 162891
Finish: Honduras Mahogany, Open pore Satin Lacquer
Description: This piano is from the acknowledged Golden Period of Steinway New York and was built there in the Spring of 1913. This instrument was purchased rebuilt at Music Lovers Shoppe in Rochester, N.Y. in the 1980’s. The piano was restrung, and refinished in an open pore lacquer satin finish. This piano has the desirable pre-War hammers that have that wonderful, rich tone! This piano has a large range and produces sound more like its larger brother the 5’ 10” model L. While this was not the most elaborate rebuild, we created a wonderful example of pre-WarSteinway magic while being able to offer this piano at an incredibly LOW price – easily 45% less than a typical price for a similar rebuild!
