Classic satin walnut cabinet.

In contrast to many Japan-made pianos, Boston pianos commonly feature more traditional American-style finishes; this particular instrument exhibits a classic satin walnut cabinet. It's a great choice for more classic interiors and rooms where a polished black piano would be inappropriate - a fantastic musical instrument in a package that is very aesthetically appealing.

Beautiful American tone.

Boston pianos are designed by Steinway & Sons and built in Japan by Kawai. They combine some of the most positive elements of both makers: Consistency and affordability of a Japanese piano and the warmth, depth of tone, and action responsiveness of a Steinway.  It's a great combination that produces a very enjoyable instrument to play.

About the Boston GP-178 (from the manufacturer)

The Boston piano features a duplex scale, adapted from the famous Steinway & Sons design, which adds a harmonic richness that simply can’t be duplicated by other instruments in a similar price range.

In comparison to other pianos, the Boston has less string tension. This reduced string tension allows for a larger, tapered soundboard, creating longer sustain, and more singing quality in the tone (as well as longer piano life). A wealth of other engineering enhancements, including optimal placement of ribs, braces, and bridges, also contribute to the Boston’s superior tone and greater stability.

The Boston grand piano offers a larger soundboard in comparison to other pianos of the same length, due to its innovative “wide tail” design. This wider construction of the case means that a 5’ 10” Boston grand has the same soundboard area as a typical 6’ 2” grand piano, creating the power, richness, and feel of playing a much larger piano.

Each Boston piano soundboard is crafted of Sitka spruce, long proven to be the most resonant material available. Boston soundboards are also precisely tapered, which allows them to vibrate more freely. In conjunction with a number of special technologies — unique patents of Steinway & Sons — the result is a powerful, sustained tone.

Condition notes

Areas of the rim and lid exhibit a very minor degree of cosmetic lightening due to sun exposure.  This is an extremely common phenomenon with wood finish pianos is is not likely to diminish its cosmetic presentation in most settings.
