First-time callers are often concerned about the age of their piano; whether it is still serviceable after a certain number of years. I tell them 'pianos age just like people.' A fifteen year old piano is still a kid and should be in nearly perfect condition. A forty-five year old piano is in the prime of life and I would expect few (if any) issues. I don't expect to see serious problems requiring a lot of repairs until a piano is more than age 60. Nevertheless, just as with a human body, if it is abused or neglected, problems can and will occur earlier and with greater severity.
