Veni, vidi, vici
I ran across a guy who I know does a decent rebuilding job. He's got a plain cabinet 1924 Ivers & Pond, that has been taken care of over the years, that he thinks will turn out well. Keytops have been replaced at some point inits life and the soundboard is still good (would you even attempt an upright with a bad soundboard?). Since it's a 700 series, it's 53" tall, mahogany finish.

I know a top notch rebuild on an artcase cabinet will bust $10k.

Restrung, refelted, new hammers, case refinished and the action redone...what is a plain jane, but from a very good maker, piano like that worth?
