Metal springs might break.
Glue joints disintegrate.
High humidity levels may have affected parts of the mechanism preventing it from playing freely.
Felts and leathers can harden.
Pedals start squeaking at the most inappropriate time.
Copper wound bass strings decide to rattle like snakes.
And … we haven’t even mentioned moths and mice yet.

Steel strings may have corroded over time, affecting tone and tuneability.
