    Like the subject says...I'm looking at the spacing of the front back bridge pins in the monochords, which is similar to something I am currently experimenting with. Quite tight...much less than the common 18-15mm...termination offset is harder to read from the pic.

    Mr. Ialeggio,
    It's a Steinway model D. From the finish on the plate and the bridge pin pattern I'm guessing it's Mr Hughes from Maryland's work. But I'm an unreliable source in this regard. About the make and model though I'm pretty confident. The Photographer, Mr. Lee, has a facebook page. You could ask him directly.

    I can almost make out a cast plate name...the shape of that  cast bit didn't look like Steinway to, but I am no expert by any means, on Steinways.

    For me the tell is the trichord from notes 14 thru 20. That, and the Lyre and Ampersand cast into the plate next to the strut :-)
