For my wedding, I gave my best man (a harp player) a new-old-stock handmade
Meisterklasse (with the flat coverplates, not the MS concave ones) with an
inscription engraved on the bottom cover. It was not very lengthy, but it was
done by the engraving place at the mall. If you can locate them, you could
replace the top cover with an engraved lower cover, since there are no features
at all on the 580 bottom cover, and the top cover doesn't say much (I think it
says Hohner Meisterklasse 580, no hole numbers, etc.). I have a few of these
parts lying around, but they aren't in suitable condition.
The Meisterklasse chromatic would be nice, but it's pretty pricy! Engraving a
plastic CX-12 might be problematic.
I'd suggest you find a trophy shop and check with them on what you can engrave,
the type sizes available, and choose from there.
