Old finishes become very dark, chipped, "alligatored", and may have missing veneer.
Your piano case will be completely disassembled down to the last screw. It will then be stripped of it's old finish and hand-sanded down to bare wood. Stain is applied (we can change a piano's original color if desired), followed by the highest quality finishes. Oil and poly finishes are available in satin through gloss. All hardware is replated or polished and returned to the piano. This is a tedious and time-consuming process.
Cost varies considerably depending on the size, type, and amount of detail on the piano, but generally runs from about $4000 - $7000.
The end result is spectacular!
