It was handcrafted in Czechoslovakia and they were very hard to come by in 2000. Supply was not meeting demand in USA. Often a several months wait to get one. It's very beautiful and everyone that sees it always "ooh" and "ahs" over it. The sound is equally beautiful. *I might take a Steinway Vertical OR PETROF upright as partial trade.
