This instrument has been totally rebuilt, new pinblock, dampers, restrung, action overhauled. This is one of the last year's that Yamaha used actual ivory. Piano has full bass and mid-range with a songful treble, clear, but not harshly bright as is the case with many Yamaha. The instrument was rebuilt by Dwight Pile who is a Yamaha specialist. A new C7 is in excess of 50K...this piano will provide many years of great service.
