Thanks for the tip, Sparky! I was trying to insert a floating image (no particular reason), non-floating works much better. This is a high iso, high contrast, monochrome experiment. Great thread!

It doesn't look quite as nice inside as yours, but it's still a keeper. Maybe I'll post more pics after I get the keytops redone. Some type of Kluge whites and real ivory sharps. Can't wait!

What's so bad about that - the string terminates eventually, right? It's sort of like a maze...

Well, it looks to me like the string termination loops are definitely not right, or at least not “orthodox” or the norm (sloppy might be a good description). However, as Terminaldegree stated, the strings do terminate somewhere. I doubt the tuning stability on those particular notes would be very good.

On some high end pianos, all the plain wire is twisted/tied off individually and not looped. That is certainly more time consuming and laborious. The advantage of that (single tied wire) is perhaps some added tuning stability and the fact that if one string breaks, you don’t lose two as a result.

There is no excuse for sloppy work.

Yeah! hate when that happens. How are things at the tuning pins?

I should have thought to take pictures of that, too. Total s&%t show; some pins have 5 coils, others have one or two, and they're not neatly done, either (except the original strings, and the ones I replaced). This piano was an absolute nightmare to work on (I even tuned it to a lower pitch as a precaution).

Dear Sam,

The Imperial that is second from the right - it looks beautiful, but somehow there is something missing. I cannot quite put my fingers on it. I am sorry to dampen your photo, but I wouldn't want you to string us along.

I am new to the site and ran across these beautiful photos. I can say for certain that it has given me a case of piano envy! I am searching for the right one (for me) and wake up at night thinking about it! Thanks for sharing your love for your instruments, as it surely shines through!
