Steinway & Sons Model A-III Grand Piano | Fully Restored – Satin Ebony w/ Mahogany Inner Rim

Considered one of the finest scale designs ever produced by Steinway & Sons, the Model A-3 Grand Piano has become the preferred choice of numerous high-level pianists and technicians. Steinway Model A-3 #186423 was built in 1917 at the New York Steinway Factory. The A-3 design is the pinnacle of Steinway’s Parlor Grand development. Crafted only for a select number of years amid the ‘golden age’ of piano manufacturing, this piano is a powerful, yet equally delicate instrument. This 1917 Steinway Parlor Grand Piano has been fully rebuilt and is ready for your careful consideration.

The Model A-3 was first made in 1913 and these instruments measure 6’4 1/2″ in length making them substantially larger than their Model A-1 or A-2 brethren. (The recently re-introduced Model A is the smaller 6’2″ Model A-2 design.) Extra length combined with an advanced scale design make these rare instruments highly prized and comparable to a larger Steinway Model B. Model A-3 #186423 features a modern styled square arm cabinet. The cabinet has been expertly refinished in a closed pore, satin ebony lacquer with an African Flame Mahogany inner rim. The case rests on window pane, spade style legs with nickel plated casters which match the rest of the piano’s nickel hardware.



Our piano technicians have spent the time and effort needed to turn this piano into a true concert level instrument. The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt with new parts. This includes new dimensionally correct Renner wippens (repetitions) and new hammers, shanks and flanges. The piano boasts a full, electrifying quality of tone. Coupled with a responsive, smooth touch, this piano is a stunning example of the capabilities of vintage Steinway Grand Pianos.

The belly of the piano has been fully rebuilt with a new solid spruce soundboard, a custom fitted hard maple pinblock and much more. The piano’s keyboard features restored ebony sharps and new acrylic keytops. Steinway Model A3 #186423 was found to be a great candidate for a full restoration and exemplifies the qualities expected of a golden era grand piano.
