Description

Circa 1970s Yamaha C3 baby grand piano used extensively by Christine McVie while on tour with Fleetwood Mac. She preferred Yamaha pianos while touring, saying of the maker: "I have always found Yamaha pianos to be the most sturdy and reliable for touring... Case in point, when taking my old piano that I had used for 20 years on tour to England, it needed very little tuning when it was taken out of its case. That just goes to show it's a mighty fine product." (From Accent [Volume 27], Fall 1997) For the two decades between the tours for Rumours and The Dance in 1977 and 1997, McVie played this piano during performances of "Songbird," which would often close Fleetwood Mac concerts. McVie says: "The baby grand, where I have played 'Songbird,' the song I'm most proud of, has been such an important part of my life and career." Together with a DVD of The Dance (Reprise, 1997). YEAR 1970s BRAND Yamaha MODEL C3 TYPE Piano SERIAL NO B2293638 PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES Baby grand in black gloss finish. On casters so easily positioned, top opens for recording and projection. OPERATION Plays and sounds really well with great action, clear rich tonality CONDITION NOTES In very good condition.
