Who did the first sounboard replacement outside a factory setting? The earliest I know of is Steve Jellen, and he did his work in the Fifties. Cliff Geers, maybe? though I don't know his timeline.

Trefz in Philly was doing it in the 60s and probably much earlier.

Soundboards were replaced on harpsichords, particularly when Flemish instruments were reconstructed in France.
