The piano was always kept with the lid open, the front part of the lid folded back, and the keys covered. The only time the fading is very noticeable is when the front part of the lid is not folded back. This is shown in the last two pictures. The piano was tuned and evaluated by two sources in March of 2021. The non-Steinway authorized tuner noted the following.In extremely dry indoor humidity, i. 26%, some of the tuning pins were loose. The sound board may have small cracks. Neither of these issues affected the sound quality - the piano was able to be beautifully tuned. The Steinway authorized tuner noted the following. The sound board may have small ripples, but they were not affecting the sound and it was "an easy fix".
They did not see any evidence of loose tuning pins. They noted that there was no teflon, which is good.Both tuners noted that the sound quality was excellent, and that the instrument was in really wonderful condition.
