John Lennon needs no introductions. However the brilliant music magician, a part of the Beatles is unfortunately no longer with us. In order to celebrate what would recently have been John’s 70th birthday had he still been with us ; Steinway & Sons have created Imagine series of limited edition pianos.
Only 100 such pianos will be created and each instrument will feature a medallion on its inner rim including the series name and number, as well as John Lennon’s Japanese signature. The baby model is to be sold for 90,000$ but if you must have the concert grand sized piano than its going to set you lighter by $180,000.
Modeled after the white Steinway grand piano presented by John Lennon to Yoko Ono (his wife) on her birthday, February 18, in 1971, Imagine Series pianos feature several special, unique elements that trace their connection to Lennon:
