Steinway & Sons Model M Grand Piano #251683 – Ready to Restore

Introduced in 1911, the Steinway Model M Grand Piano has grown to be one of Steinway’s most popular instruments. In constant production since its introduction, the Model M has become a staple of both the New York and Hamburg factories. Measuring 5’7″ in length, these ‘baby’ grands are at home in both private residences and institutions around the world. Model M Grand Pianos are some of our most selected instruments.

Built in 1926, Steinway Model M #251683 was owned by a family on the west coast. In excellent structural condition, this piano is a great choice for a full restoration. The cabinet is veneered in a pleasant cut of mahogany. The piano can be refinished in mahogany or in ebony depending on your preference. Our closed pore, hand rubbed refinishing methods restore the original beauty of the piano’s cabinet. The original ivory keytops have been restored and are in immaculate condition. The original spruce soundboard is in good condition with a couple of small, tight, hairline cracks. The board is still tight against the supporting ribs. For optimum stability of tuning, we recommend replacing the pinblock with a new Durablock hard rock maple pinblock. To restore the tone and responsiveness, we recommend a fully rebuilt and regulated action. Once properly rebuilt, this instrument is sure to provide you with an incredible playing experience that only a piano bearing the name of Steinway can!
