Jim here:

Things of particular interest:

1: Yamaha is no longer making the CFII model, what Glenn used for the 81
Goldbergs.  Anyone know how the CFIIIS differs from the CFII?

2:  The Yamaha is a little bit bigger than the Steinway Model D.

Anyone know how long the Model D specs have remained constant?  As in, are
these dimensions the same as Gould's CD 318?

And one final question:  Was CD 318 made in Hamburg or New York?  My guess
is New York, though Hamburg would be better considering Gould spent a month
recuperating there during a European concert tour.
