with some modern Westerns ie, Broken Trail, Open Range, is that every time the characters go into a saloon there is no music of any kind, no pianos, no instuments at all.

A saloon piano is iconic, no?

Seems to me I read some place that prior to TV, Radio, Phonographs, the only entertainment a lot of homes had was pianos. So you'd think that the main socializing place in town would have a piano, or something, kind of funny ain't it?

At least even a player piano (1876 in US for a "Pianista a pnuematic player piano and The first automatic piano was unveiled in New York City by Needham and Sons in 1880. It was built by R. W. Paine and was an adaptation of the orguinette mechanism that was set up by William Tremaine at what later became the Aeolian Company. In 1887, a year after Votey invented the Pianola; Edwin Welte introduced the perforated paper roll in Germany. The perforated roll mechanism to make music was based on the Jacquard punch cards used to weave designs into cloth.) would be a draw.

Yes  this is a big let down by Hollywood a saloon with no music what a sad place let the Rojos burn it down
thinking about it the saloon in Josey Wales had no music (Piano) so Eastwood needs telling off maybe it was another one of his penny pinching stunts
