Hi folks, I apologize for my absence. Looking for an RPT in the San Francisco area for a client who is moving there from Toronto with her family. She's a music teacher and performer and will be upgrading her Yamaha G2 (which she's not taking with her), so let me know who's out there who can help her. Thanks!

Thanks Gene. (Are these all people you know and could recommend, or did they come off the PTG site?)

David Love is really top notch... Met him and seen/heard some of his work. Really strong knowledge base on voicing/hammers/action work etc..

I used to recommend Israel too, but now he's in, well, ISRAEL! That would be a heck of a commute!

I would add Larry Lobel and Zhi Wei Huang to the list. Both awesome guys!
