Anyone able to recommend someone in the Minneapolis area to check out this recently purchased piano?
I am thinking of restoring it to some degree or even rebuilding it.
Who can I trust with this old classic?
Any ideas, or information that could assist me?
It appears to be in very good shape, but the action seem a little stiff.
Thanks.

Replacing the felts in the key bed and action will help to some degree.I have just finished restoring this very piano.1928 double A .The action will be somewhat stif at first but it can be regulated after the proper thicknes of felt's are replaced.
