There is a Hohner International on ebay right now.  Here is the link: iewItem


It looks like there is a sticker on the back that says "Made in the German Democratic Republic".  That's East Germany, right?  Is this for real?  Did Hohner actually make accordions in East Germany, or did someone just stick that sticker on there?

I'm not interested in buying it, I just wanted to know if Hohner really made accordions in East Germany, when there was an East Germany.

For some reason, I think these international hohner model feels pretty bad, even if they are "broken in"... I don't like them para nada.
Bueno bye.
