1939 World's Fair Piano -- Electric Storytone Story & Clark: $1
This is an extremely rare and historically important instrument. The Storytone piano was built in 1939 in a joint venture between Story & Clark and RCA - the piano has normal strings and action but no soundboard - the sound is amplified by pickups and a speaker system making it the world's first practical electric piano. The sound is very beautiful considering its design during the infancy of amplified instruments. As you can see the design is striking - art deco at its most radical. In excellent condition. Height 36in.
