To commemorate the 70th birthday of the venerable legend John Lennon, piano maker Steinway & Sons has introduced the Imagine Series Limited Edition piano. The Imagine Series Limited Edition is modeled after the white Steinway grand piano that John Lennon presented to Yoko Ono on her birthday in 1971, which is still at their famous Manhattan residence, the Dakota, where Lennon was shot and killed.
The music desk of each piano incorporates one of four different John Lennon original drawings. "Come Together," the title of the opening track on the Beatles' historic album Abbey Road, which reflects John Lennon's desire to bring people together; Grand Piano is a drawing that captures the songwriting process -- as musician and piano become one, while Freda People exemplifies John Lennon's passion for using music for the benefit of mankind; and Self Portrait is perhaps John Lennon's most famous drawing.
Other special features of this Limited Edition series include:
: • The lyrics "You May Say I'm a Dreamer" elegantly displayed on the bass side of the rim
• The opening bars to "Imagine" printed directly on the gold plate of the piano
• A medallion on the inner rim including John Lennon's Japanese chop mark/signature (which he often used to sign his artwork) as well as the series name and number
• A replica of John Lennon's signature gracing the treble side of the fallboard
