George Steck & Co. Square Grand

During Restoration

 


This Square Grand's ornate legs and lyre made it a challenging but very rewarding refurbishment. We took time over every detail to make sure the job was thoroughly done. Being seven feet long, it is one of the heavier instruments we have refurbished.
