The cast iron frame paint has dried well. This gold is so beautiful that the photo can’t look natural. But it is not retouched! There are a couple of works to do on this frame. So excited to see how this will match to the body.


Moving on to the bridge. These brass bridge pins are replaced with iron pins. Sadly, there were two broken pins when the piano arrived here. Then removed all the other pins. The bridge top surface is cleaned. Indeed, only bridge pins for bass are in stock at this point, thus other pins are expected to arrive from supplier. Other than that, the body is ready for restringing.
