Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Golden Melody Item #49 Key of B
Hohner Golden Melody
Key of B
Original Box Not Included
This is one of the harmonicas that the estate sent to Adam Gussow for appraisal. His notes are as follows: B "Golden Melody". Broken (screw out) + wood scratched.
This Golden Melody is a prize. If desireability is at all determined by how extensively the harmonica was played by Sonny,this is as good as it gets. Joe Filisko told me that B was Sonny's favorite key. That's a great start. This harmonica shows signs of heavy use. The covers are tarnished from Sonny's hands and mouth and it looks beat up. The comb shows significant wear from rubbing against a microphone and one of the cover pins in missing. Highly collectible.
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.
