FS: Chickering Ampico 5'8", Very Cheap
By Marty Roenigk

Well, we had some bites but no takers on the Chickering that we
cited a week ago on MMD.  For those that didn't see it, this piano
came in with a small collection and is taking up more space than we
want to give up, and we tend not to handle reproducing pianos anyway.

It seems to be in nice shape and has clearly had a lot of work: new
hammers, piano and action seems to play and sound very nice.  There
clearly has been some work done to the player mechanism: new tubes,
electric motor has been replaced.

However we have not tried the player mechanism and are offering it as,
very unrestored, as is where is.  Comes with about 90 original Ampico
rolls.  Photos are available and will be going up next week on

Priced to move it quickly and easily (for us).  Now only $1400 to the
first check received.
