Hello Group,

Any interest in old pianos for guitar making? I regularly see ads for free or really cheap old pianos and I'm always wondering if it would be worth it to start a piano recycling business to strip them down for the wood and sell it for guitar blanks?

I think this old wood is desirable but what would a guitar builder pay for a blank made from this wood? Would it be not worth the trouble or something people would want? Would it sell for a premium because of what it is or at a deep discount to what's out there now?

Thanks for any input.

Bunch of videos on YouTube , one channel in particular " Homegrown Guitars"
Seems that for the most part they are after the sound board for acoustic guitar tops.
But depending what the wood the body is made of it should work . Check it out and good luck .
