The Steinway Model A, Style III Grand Piano measures 6’4 1/2″ in length, substantially longer than the currently produced Model A-2. Out of all of the pianos built by Steinway, the A-3 is our favorite scale design. When properly rebuilt and regulated, these pianos are on par with even the best Steinway Model B Grands.
