We are manufacturers of the Lester Player-Piano. We
are right here to back it up, Just as we have been for 45
years. Our absolute money-back guarantee goes with every
Lester. It MUST give satisfaction. That's why it will pay
you to buy from the manufacturer.
Another reason is that by selling direct from our great factories
