Steinway Grand Piano Model A 6'4.5" known as the "stretch" A because the usual A's were either 6'1" or 6'2"this is a 6'4.5" and they only made a few thousand of these from around 1915-1930. This piano is more like a B than an A yet has a refinement that you will find in very few Steinways or other pianos. Legend has it Steinway stopped making these because it was competing with the B in that is played and looked very similiar but cost significantly less the the B at that time. Steinway only recently started making A's again but not this design. They are making one's that are only 6'1". This piano was completely rebuilt with all Steinway parts by former Steinway Technicians here in NY this past year 2010 and has not been out of the workshop. New sound board, pinblock, new strings, hammers and shanks, wippens. In fact the only thing that is not new is the cast iron plate and the case. All Steinway parts. Also high end hand rubbed satin ebony finish.This is an incredible sounding and looking piano. For the piano connoisseur. Call Sonny at 631 475-8046 for questions and to make an appointment to come and play it if you like.
