I believe they will still sell this as a special order, model "Brussel". Expect to pay 3x what a plain-case Bösendorfer would cost, though.


Oui! That seems to be an early (?) ver. of the one pictured first in my org. post.

I can't decide which is my most favorite (probably because I can't afford any of them!), but here are my favorites from Steinway (they're all Bs):

Ellipse:

Paul, it is very clear that all those Steinways are built with a very fine craftmanship, but I don't think they're that good looking. If I had to pick one I would choose one you picked, Grove Park.

OK, so the Germans make decent pianos. I think it`s too much to ask of them that they look good . . . their cars certainly don`t.

Get the French on the job.

I always liked this design, even if it does take 5000 fingers to play.

I finally found two really nice Steinway special grands:

S.L.ED by Karl Lagerfeld
http://www.steinway.com/pianos/steinway/limited-edition/karl-lagerfeld/

and

Count Goertz’s 125th Anniversary Limited Edition Grand Piano
http://www.steinway.com/pianos/steinway/limited-edition/the-125th-anniversary/

The Lagerfeld one is cooler, but the Görtz looks really liveable and the one I would like to have if I was buying one.

My vote goes for the Tricentennial Steinway. The orange and gold go really well whilst still looking traditional
