Declaration Of Steinway Parts
If the seller doesn’t have a statement with their signature you can use the Declaration of Steinway Parts Authenticity Certificate available for download from www.usedsteinwaypiano.com. Present this certificate to any rebuilder or seller of a rebuilt Steinway piano and request that they fill it out and sign it to ensure that the piano has genuine Steinway parts.
Genuine Steinway Parts
Should you decide to buy a used Steinway piano not restored by Steinway & Sons, it is recommended that you request, in writing, from the seller, a statement verifying that the piano has 100% genuine Steinway parts and that it can be proven.
