Well I guess you could always take a file and some sandpaper to your Estonia.

As I recall, in addition to the bevelling, the sharps are also made of a very nice matte material, not glossy, very classy.

My neighbor in Wisconsin has a 1953(?) Bosie Imperial. He is a tuner, tech and rebuilder. It is not his primary piano (that's the 1903 M&H CC he has downstairs ).

Anyhow, he is a large (not fat) man. Tall, about 6'4" and has huge huge hands. He had a hard time getting between the sharps of the Bosie, so he took the action apart, and sanded (or planed) all the sharps down about 1/16" on each side. Now his fingers fit just right.

I prefer the non-beveled....I have one of each...also the matte finish on my "beveled" piano is because the keys are made from ebony.

I also had a college professor who was 6'4" and his hands were so think I couldn't understand how he could get between the keys...yet an amazingly delicate but powerful touch...his name...Jorge Bolet.

Personally - I am very fond of the Yamaha keys; white and black.
