Bechstein model B Restoration

Bechstein Model B

This C. Bechstein ‘gate leg’ model B grand underwent a complete restoration. Finished in Ebony the case required a huge amount of man hours to bring it up to the smooth high gloss finish that French Polish produces. It is also the traditional method that was used on these magnificent instruments when they were first made!
