For a few years, and only in a few areas of the West Coast, Tombo marketed
the now discontinued Major Boy, and it was the EXACT same harp as the Lee
Oskar with a different cover plate. I have seen these a couple of times from
some other players and even a store around the Boston area had them, but
this was in the late 80's, and haven;t seen them since.
