Does or did Hohner make a Golden Melody in the key of high G?
No, they make them but they are rarely ordered. Mines is at
the high end of my gig case.

With all respect to the emminent Mr. Leone, I don't believe this is correct. I used to buy harmonicas directly from the distributor, and was informed that both low and high tunings were no longer being made. It's still perhaps possible to find new-old-stock in inventory somewhere, but I don't believe they're coming out of the factory in these keys these days.

Ok, I'll buy that for a dollar. I have one with the red plastic comb. I got it at the same time as an F# because the dist. (B. Li'l Harp Hse) said that they didn't have these high keys in my (personal) preference, which is spl-20s. They could very well have been new old stock. I should have verified if my information was stale before I posted. I apologize. Thanks Tim.

Perhaps John Watts will weigh in on this topic.
