    I'm going to restore this unique piano for my daughter.  Never seen one like it.  It won't sound great but it's too cool to trash.  The action comes out separately from the keys but the keys, keyframe and drop wires with levers all come out together. Different but not as difficult as I thought it might be.

    Sounds like a good project. It's nice to have at least one example of those unique actions
