What brand, size and age is the piano? What else does it need?

There was Ford Pinto, and before that, there was forte piano.

Now there's Ford Piano? Ah! Evolution! \:D

Cheers!

Joe, you might do better to post this in the Piano Tuners and Technicians forum on here. Where it says Hop To at the bottom of the page you can find it in the drop down list.

Thanks Mikhailoh;
I posted there, I also posted here because I wanted the opinions of Players if they had any knowledge of this particular rebuilder. Apparently not.
Thanks again

By the way, I can't imagine that a 1920's Bechie would not be worth rebuilding. I love Bechsteins. Let us know how it works out!

Be sure that there are no cracks in the plate, which seems to happen more often in older Bechsteins than in other pianos of the same age. Infrequent, but a major concern if present.
