For being "from the 1950s" it sure has been through a lot!

That was nothing short of horrifying. One wonders if he meant to take the bass bridge off in that last photo.

Honestly, that kinda gave me chills. Just seems like he's two steps from being cuckoo :P

Also, IDK if this classic's ever been posted before:

That is one hefty tuning fee - I'd be happy to apprentice with THAT tech . . .

What's in that piano isn't tar, it's soot. No wonder there were no interior shots with the lid up.

Right Marty, and the soot or else water sprayed to put out the fire causes heavy rust on the strings.

A fire damaged piano can still have its finish in fine shape! Buyer beware...

I forgot to mention that a Samick SIG-50 is 15 years old tops and of course the piano is too new to ever look like that!

Maybe he knew the lady who stored her little grand in a flimsy, airy aluminum shed in her back yard. (Sure enough, somewhere under all of that mold and oxidation there was a piano.) help

I do believe that piano was built by Snapp, Snow & Pods. The factory is located somewhere in a valley. They are considered a giant in the industry.

Either that or the seller is a product of our local public schools.

I think the year of manufacture is a little suspect, too.
