Conover Baby Grand
The core structure of a fine piano can last for several generations although refurbishing is appropriate at some point. Below are some pictures of a rebuild project of a Conover baby grand piano. This piano was manufactured in the second decade of the 1900s. This was a solid instrument and well worth the tear down, refinishing, and replacement of the main components.We don't have pictures of the total tear-down when the metal plate was removed for soundboard reconditioning and refinishing. But you can observe the original condition compared with the finished product.
