1921 Steinway Model O Grand Piano #208778 – Mahogany Going Ebony – Undergoing Restoration
Built in 1921 at the New York Steinway Factory, Model O #208778 features an African Flame Mahogany cabinet. Model O Grands measure 5’10 1/2″ in length making them well balanced for both home or institutional use. First produced in 1900, these instruments were recently reintroduced at the New York Factory in 2005. Production was constant since introduction at the Hamburg Factory.
This piano is in mostly original condition and after an evaluation has been found to be a perfect candidate for a full restoration. The piano’s cabinet is in very solid structural condition and the figured flame mahogany veneer is still well attached. The cabinet will be refinished in a closed pore, hand rubbed satin lacquer in either the original mahogany or ebony depending on your selection. The piano’s original soundboard has numerous cracks so we recommend the installation of a new, solid spruce board along with a new custom fitted hard rock maple pinblock.
The action can be rebuilt with the finest action parts available and will be expertly regulated and voiced to bring out the inherent qualities of touch and tone expected of a vintage piano bearing the name of Steinway & Sons. Maples International piano wire and custom manufactured bass strings will ensure the production of the purest tone. We do our best to offer as many options as possible to those looking to purchase a Steinway & Sons Grand Piano. This instrument is perfect for any pianist who is seeking the high quality and performance of a genuine restored Steinway Grand piano at a great value. This piano is currently undergoing a full restoration. Below is a list of work that will be completed on this vintage piano.
