Since 1897, Ford Piano has been rebuilding the finest American made pianos from Steinway & Sons, Mason & Hamlin, Knabe and Chickering. A higher quality rebuilt American grand piano can sound just as good and even better in some cases than a comparably priced new piano. Steinway, Mason and Hamlin, and Knabe are the rebuilt pianos of choice, while Baldwin and Chickering made models that are also quite rebuildable. Other older American makers such as Weber, Hardman, George Steck, and a host of others have made real solid, rebuildable pianos. If rebuilt properly, these American grand pianos can have a deeper, richer tone and touch than a comparably priced new piano. Nice veneers and case styles make these better name rebuilt American grand pianos a better investment in some cases than a new piano.

The three parts of piano rebuilding / restoration are the strings, action and finish.

Here you can see the crack in the pinblock.
