Steinway Heirloom Collection
A Steinway of uncommon character that plays like new, the Steinway Heirloom Collection was created to distinguish the finest vintage Steinway pianos in the world — rebuilt, Steinway Factory–Restored and hand-painted to look and play like new. Unlike pianos you may find elsewhere, the rebuilt Steinway Factory–Restored quality and authenticity of these instruments are 100%–certified by Steinway & Sons. Each Steinway Heirloom piano is a handcrafted work of art, expressing the unique design elements and personality of the historic era in which it was created.

Available for Steinway & Sons grand pianos 30 years or younger, the Steinway Certified Pre-Owned program can be found at select Steinway retail locations. Each CPO instrument includes a 74-point checklist to ensure authenticity, condition and performance. Any repair or replacement to a CPO instrument is done with 100% genuine Steinway parts. All CPO instruments come with a signed inspection report with matching serial number, a Steinway Certified Pre-Owned warranty certificate with matching serial number, and a Steinway Certified Pre-Owned rim stamp on the piano itself. Steinway Certified Pre-Owned instruments come with a three-year limited warranty.
When you purchase any Certified Pre-owned Steinway, you have the option within five years of the date of purchase to receive 100% of the original purchase price in trade toward a new Steinway grand. That is The Steinway Promise.
