"Trouble with a Capital T, and that rhymes with P, and that stands for Pre-Owned!" Steinway & Sons Pianos are multi-generation pianos constructed with the greatest craftsmanship known to man. So why is there really no such thing as a "New Steinway Piano"? Because the very moment you, as a Steinway buyer, bring the new piano home that baby (grand) is now Used, and subject to a secondary market price.
Steinway & Sons Legal Counsel Issues a "Policy Letter" on December 11, 2018 regarding Used and Pre-Owned Steinway Pianos replete with threats. These threats are targeted toward any seller of a Used Steinway Piano, including private individuals and musicians attempting to sell their piano.
