Steinway M 1929 vs Steinway A-II 1908

Post by summersbest » 05 Oct 2011, 20:08

I must decide soon. I can get a totally renewed Steinway A-II (Steinway parts other than Renner action) for less than a beautiful Steinway M with mostly original features, including ivory keys, soundboard, pin block, all in flawless condition. I've heard the M and I love it. The A-II renovation hasn't begun. The A-II will also be slightly less since this technician has a different business model and no overhead.

Any advice.

Dont put any money down or commit until youve seen the finished job.

If you love the Steinway M and can afford it go buy it.
