Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Golden Melody Item #59 Key of B
Hohner Golden Melody
Key of C
Original Box Included
This is one of the harmonicas that the estate sent to Adam Gussow for appraisal. His notes are as follows: Significant wear. A "played" harp. Many flat notes. Poor.
This Golden Melody shows clear signs of significan use. The covers are tarnished and worn from Sonny's hands and lips. The red plastic comb is scratched and chipped. There is a little bit of Sonny's dried spit in the slots. Joe Filisko told me that B was Sonny's favorite key. This being so, it is a safe bet that this harp was near and dear to him.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case, and will include an 8X10 glossy black and white photo of Sonny - suitable for framing. An individually signed Certificate of Authenticity and Bill of Sale will also be included.
