I have a client with a Gary A. Skinner made Grand Piano that he bought new for around $7,500.00. He has owned it for over 20 years and it's been in his family for the past 50 years. He recently had it restored and is asking $7,000.00 for this beautiful old piano. Without knowing the serial numbers, he will find it difficult to sell.
The owners of Bakersfield have informed me that they have many Steinway & Sons pianos; however, they have no idea if they are from the original Freeman's or the Knabe-Zody pianos. As they don't know anything about the pianos, they are having a hard time getting them repaired and/or repaired quickly. I have met David at the store several times, but David calls first before he comes. However, I did find one that David has kept for 51 years and it was in great condition. This is their #414124.
I would guess that he updated his last name, I'm not sure. But David has written and sold about 500 of them. Please let me know if you need more information on this beautiful piano. I am located at 265 Moller Rd., Reno, NV 89502. To contact me, call me at 231-215.1 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. d2c66b5586
