This is what happens to old pianos in my world:
It was in bad shape and I don't even play - but the piano was too beautiful to chop up for firewood - and no one would take it away. HMMM didn't mean to be so poetic . Anyway..........
I had it "gutted" and now it is garden sculpture
The beautiful walnut piano itself will be re-fitted and used to house my CD player and all that jazz in the Salon.
