*SOLD* Laurel Leaf – Converted to A/D/G

We have just finished a very interesting custom restoration of a very rare 3-row Hohner Golden Laurel Leaf box to an A/D/G melodeon. The instrument is roundabout 80 years old and appears to be in excellent condition. With its golden metal grill and metal corners, this truly is an exceptionally beautiful instrument. In addition to the standard repairs and restoration, we converted this box from a chromatic button accordion to a diatonic one. Not only have we replaced the reeds, but we also re-wired the bass buttons. The black dots indicating the chromatic button accordion keyboard appear to be glued on but can be removed easily. However, we decided to keep them on. Not only do they look nice, but they also add a bit of a (melodeon)-devil-in-disguise feeling to it. As requested by its new owner we have tuned the fresh reeds with a dry and modern tremolo.
