Steinway M 260046 tear down
Below are pictures of my most recent rebuild start. Even though I haven't added pictures recently, I have been very busy. This piano will get a total restoration with refinishing. The first picture shows the old pin block, bridges and soundboard. On the soundboard are the rough cut ribs which are the start of making a new soundboard. These will be hand fitted to the piano rim for a tight precise fit. The second picture shows the piano body with the soundboard and pinblock removed. More will follow in the coming weeks as work progresses. In the mean time parts need to be ordered.This is expected to be about a 12 month process.
