For being "from the 1950s" it sure has been through a lot!

That was nothing short of horrifying. One wonders if he meant to take the bass bridge off in that last photo.

Honestly, that kinda gave me chills. Just seems like he's two steps from being cuckoo :P

I've seen the white walls of a family of heavy chain smokers turn a dark brown in only a few months.

What's in that piano isn't tar, it's soot. No wonder there were no interior shots with the lid up.

Right Marty, and the soot or else water sprayed to put out the fire causes heavy rust on the strings.

A fire damaged piano can still have its finish in fine shape! Buyer beware...

I forgot to mention that a Samick SIG-50 is 15 years old tops and of course the piano is too new to ever look like that!

You have to wonder why the owner thought where it was kept was important to mention.

Maybe he knew the lady who stored her little grand in a flimsy, airy aluminum shed in her back yard. (Sure enough, somewhere under all of that mold and oxidation there was a piano.) help

I do believe that piano was built by Snapp, Snow & Pods. The factory is located somewhere in a valley. They are considered a giant in the industry.

Either that or the seller is a product of our local public schools.
