Are you certain the plank is migrating? Soundboard cracks are not a death sentence. You may be able to repair bass bridge. I'd still not say it's not worthless How does your client feel about the piano?

Hi, yes the action will come out but just barely, its a very tight squeeze, If the plank were to get even a hairs thickness worse it could then be difficult to remove the action. Overall the piano is not in great condition, with 2 large cracks in its

Just did 2 exports of DPBSD.mid on my cheap 2GB stick, no problems. (I'm uploading the wavs (Rhodes & Wurli) for Dewster, so we can see if there is full 88-key sampling of the 73 & 64 keys respectively )

Are you able to remove the action without binding on the plank? If yes and the tuning pins feel ok I would not consider the piano to be worthless.

I had a buzzing bass string. It was because a little glue or lacquer had stiffened the surface of the damper. Check to see if you have the same buzz when the damper is raised.
