not accompanied by a repair history unfortunately and it doesn't appear that it needs new strings, tuning pins or pinblock. We can't ascertain whether bridge repairs are needed though. The soundboard exhibits a fair amount of cracks/separation that aren't repaired. The action needs work, keys have splits, minor edge chips, and discoloration, black keys aren't ebony but ebonized, pedals not attached, one ding and some scratch to lacquer of case, 56 1/4" x 65 3/4" sans keys, 72 3/4" with keys.
