Yamaha G2 Salvage key blocks

  • 1.  Yamaha G2 Salvage key blocks

    Anyone know of an early 80's Yamaha G-2 that has been junked perhaps as a result of flood or other phenomena? Preferably satin ebony. Need to locate replacement key blocks for one in which they were lost (at least at present). Acquiring new from the factory is not as easy as one might think.

    If you know of one please let me know.

    I do know that sometimes Yamaha America isn't the smoothest supplier to deal with, but if they actually do have them available, what is the problem getting them from Yamaha?

    That being said, if you can't find a used pair, make 'em. If you don't have the tools/skills/time, have someone else make 'em. I think clearly, it would be best for whomever is making them also have the piano (to get the details perfect) - or perhaps someone else could make the basic block and then you could align it in the piano and drill the hole for the bolt and locate the dowel (I'm thinking it might have one).

    Regarding finding a used one - you might try to concentrate your search in a place like North/South Carolina - where they have had severe floods recently. Or even California with the fires - maybe one that got smoked to death, but didn't actually burn. On second thought, I guess you'd really have to air those rascals out real good......
