I should have known better, but I got screwed by a piano rebuilder in Yonkers. He came recommended by a friend who should know.
Originally I just needed my piano restrung, a pretty straight ahead job if you’re a restringer so made sense to have it done. Long story short, the piano ended up in his shop to have bridge capped because the bearing needed resetting. No problem here, I agreed with everything. But this is also where he screwed me by doing to most bulls**t job of bridge notching I have ever seen.The problem is that once a bridge is notched, there is not much room to do it over.
So, the piano is with my friends at PianoWorks in Atlanta, having the bridge recapped and the whole thing restrung. Crap, maybe at the end of this I’ll finally have a real piano to send to my new pad in Charleston.
