Re: Re: [Harp-L] Golden Melody in high G

I made mine by buying a high G Marine Band and cutting the plates 
down to fit the GM body.  Of course, to really get the GM experience 
you have to adjust the intonation to 12TET.

With all respect to the emminent Mr. Leone, I don't believe  this is 
correct.  I used to buy harmonicas directly from the  distributor, 
was informed that both low and high tunings were no  longer being 
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.  

Perhaps John Watts will  weigh in on this topic.
