description

Steinway was established in 1853, and they have built pianos consistently since then. This piano was built by Steinway in 1889 and is known as a "Model B". This piano is exceedingly rare because it is made of Quarter Sawn Oak wood! Grand pianos made of Oak are almost non-existent today because Oak was a cheaper domestic wood and most grand pianos were built of imported and exotic woods like Honduras Mahogany and Brazilian Rosewood. Grand pianos made of quarter sawn oak were almost always a special order, custom made instrument. Also note the beautiful floral patterned wood inlay on the key-cover and music desk. This instrument has been restored to like new condition, including a new action, new strings, pin block, pins, etc, and is like new in every way. This instrument will match any new $100,000 grand piano in touch and tone - it is a phenomenal instrument. A matching antique bench is included. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired.
