I have an old C.Bechstein Grand Piano Serial Number 51700 circa 1900 needing restoration and have been quoted £5000 for a full restoration project.
Is it worth the trouble and how much will this piano be worth once restored to its former glory?
Have I been quoted a fair price for the restoration project?
Will £5000 get me a decent replacement instrument for my old C.Bechstein?
Thank you for your expert advice in advance.
As to what the piano is worth when done! that the wrong approach to restoring. However, if it is done well, it will be cheaper than buying a new one.
