Nooo somebody help me.  I've checked my Rhodes, and it doesn't match the diagram. At most it might have had two screws into the front rail, and two in the back rail. Nothing else unless screwed through from the top. Not sure what to do.

Hi - please can anyone help with location of screws to attach key frame into the main case of a '74 Rhodes with wooden harp supports? Even a picture or similar?

I opened a Farfisa and found a dead chemist who'd been working on synthesizing a powerful mind-altering hallucinogenic compound.  Far out...

Contact cement- clean up excess with mineral spirits. Mineral spirits will not craze or melt the plastic.

Just got this link from a friend. What's the strangest thing you've found inside a vintage keyboard?

Here are some things that have worked for international shipping.
Double wall cardboard is fine - but I always use bubble wrap and styrene foam layers.
I always try and make sure that the pack is a two person lift - so that a single guy doesn't keep dumping it on its end.
I try and make sure small forklift standoffs are included so forklift tines aren't punched into the keyboard.

As a possible solution to your issue, may I suggest you try running an EQ in your effects loop and adjust it to pull back the frequencies you're objecting to rather than modifying the piano from it's current state? As Retrolinear says any physical mods you do will affect the action and you may find your self more unhappy than you are now.
Thanks,
