Magnificent Chickering Grand Piano
For sale is a late 19th century Chickering grand piano serial number 74810. The exterior has been completely repanelled with rosewood and refinished with high-gloss polyester for durability. The sound board and plate have both been refinished. The legs were replaced with Steinway model D legs and casters because the originals were unavailable. The touch and reponse are decent as the the keyboard was regulated and voiced a few years ago. This piano was evaluated by a PTG registered techinician and appraised at $15,000 in 2009. While the piano plays okay, I'm selling it at this price as the action and belly work should be completely rebuilt to restore the sound of this magnificent piano to it's original glory. I can provide a copy of the appraisal with pictures and explanations of recommended repairs if requested. Buyer is responsible for the cost of pick-up and shipping.
