I once heard a rumor from a refinisher friend of mine about a former Tech in the Seattle area who removed the Mason Hamlin name from the plate of one and sold the piano as a Steinway. Has this piano spent any time in the Seattle area?

Interesting. All I know is the restoration work was done at international piano restoration in El Paso, TX. I’ve been told they are less than reputable and do questionable work.
