    And some more .... I just picked up a NOS Hohner Comet , double side , curved , key of G and C that are no longer in production . I was messing around not to long ago on Reverb.com and found it along with 2 others ( hohner Goliath and a smaller Hohner Chromatic ) All were half price as they were all NOS . The guy inherited his uncle's store and found a box of harps . He's in Connecticut . Don't know what else he has but PM me if you want his info

    I knew you'd dig it man. Those are cool harps you got, i have as pre war Goliath i got at a antique shop and it sounds killer. The piccolo harps are great, i ain't had one in 25 years, it looked just like those!

    Very cool.

    So it might seem (at least to me) that maybe Gretsch "sold out" a little during the wartime by not always making their own instruments, but use the name for marketing (pretty much what happens nowadays with all the old company names from the past). I guess it's just not limited to guitars.

    What a great find!
