This piano has a big, rich sound, slightly heavy action, and a rough case. A lot of good work has been done on it since 1991. It was reconditioned with new hammers, shanks, pin block, strings, tuning pins, damper felt, and key bushings. The string plate (aka "harp") was painted, too. It has been well-maintained with a climate control system and regular tunings. The piano tunes easily and is very stable. The original soundboard has been nicely shimmed.
There are a few downsides. The black lacquer on the case is alligatored and rough. There are splits in the bridge caps that don't audibly affect the tone. The white plastic key tops need light sanding and buffing. Most importantly, the action needs touch weight reduction to get it into a normal range. Down weight (in grams) is 75 bass, 65 mid, 55 treble. Friction is good. A single lead properly place in the lower 2/3 of the range would do the trick. Full technician's report and more pictures are available on request. This piano is being brokered from the owner's home in Amherst, MA by Flynn Pianos. Buyer pays for moving, etc.
