New Bösendorfer rebuild…

Well, I say new rebuild – the piano actually started back in March with a flurry of activity to remove the frame, wrest plank, and soundboard, make new legs and a lyre, then the case and all its parts were sent away to be finished in black polyester.

The piano returned a couple of days ago, and I’m currently preparing it for the new board which should arrive any day now.
