Steinway Model A Grand Piano Rebuilt Classic 6'
Recent rebuild, new soundboard, new pin-block, strings and wool parts. Completely refinished in a very attractive ebony satin
The Steinway A 6' 85-note grand was introduced in 1878, and is considered by many to be the first fully modern grand incorporating most of Steinway's distinctive inventions, including the sostenuto middle pedal, the tubular action frame with modern repetition wippens, duplex and triplex scaling to enhance treble harmonics, enabled by the 'Capo D'Astro' or treble capo bar incorporated in in the string-plate.
This is one two that are the same year and model. This is serial # 65164

This instrument is a rare model A with the treble 'bell' or rim brace that Steinway introduced in 1883, which is now used only on larger Steinway piano such as the Model B and Model D. This instrument had one major rebuild including soundboard and pin-block in the early 2000's.
The instrument has a full tone with the signature Steinway bass.
