Also you should not necessarily shy away from an M thinking it is smaller. Before 1920 (or around there), the string length on the M was the same as the L they're making today. They moved the pin block forward after that time. I have a 1926 M and am quite happy with it.

You may want to look in the Sunday paper of the nearest metropolitan area to you. Just remember you may end up dropping an extra $3K for work. In the end, a Steinway is well worth it.

Edit: I meant 1916 M

My piano made it to my new home safe & sound, thank goodness. The movers wrapped it well, then bracketed it to the wall of the van so it wouldn't move. I guess after I insured it for $20k, they wanted to make sure nothing happened to it, LOL! \:D

It is interesting to note we have not heard from Jennifer since May 27!!!! I bet she has not gotten off that new bench very much since then! \:D I got my new piano in January and everyday I am so thankful it is mine. Jala, glad to hear you got your piano and furnishing to your new home. Today I saw on Oprah how one gal was moving and had ALL her furniture stolen. It just vanished. Had the moving co. checked out ahead of time and still got ripped off. Glad it did not happen to you.
