Anyone else catch this evening's episode of CSI on CBS? The murder victim was found in the desert inside a grand piano. I got a kick out the CSIs researching the serial number to find out how old the piano was. The piano mover was a suspect for a bit. So, is it hard to clean dried blood off a soundboard?

What an episode!!!

Love the advice about so many pianos going to the dump and its better to buy a new piano than fix a old one. That grand was made in the 60's but a unworthy brand.

Love how they were sending the piano to LA for repairs. And the way it was moved.

Yea. It was moved in a truck while assembled and on a piano truck!

Also, in the opening Brass (a detective on the show) played chopstix. Yet the body was inside the piano, laying on the strings in the octives he played.

I guess dead bodies don't mute the strings they lay on!!

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.
