Letter from W. Christopher Singleton

Dear Paul,
The piano is being tuned for the first time and I want you to know what an incredible job you did in restoring Ernest Hemingway's Knabe piano. When we first saw it in the Hemingway cottage on Walloon Lake, we had no idea that we were purchasing a museum quality piano. Your restoration of this rose wood piano was nothing short of miraculous. Everyone who has seen it has said it is the most beautiful piano they have ever seen. The restored mechanics have given us a 100 year old piano with all the advantages of a new piano.
I have told many of our friends that if they ever need to have a piano restored, there is only one person to engage! We can't thank you enough for giving us a piano that has caused us to engage an architect to design an addition to our house that will give this beautiful piano the space it deserves.
