Re: Accordion Model Help???

It's a 1950s Hohner. There are a few more obscure Hohner models that crop up now & then, not in the Hohner model list. I don't think it was intended for the UK market.

Re: Age - Aches & pains...

Ok 1st update - Saw the 'new' (private) Physio yesterday: Her opinion is that it IS a trapped nerve... in the neck. It's NOT caused by playing accordion, but the shoulder strap on the left side & arm effort has aggravated it, causing inflammation along its path. She tested arm & head range of moveme...

Re: Age - Aches & pains...

Blimey - we've touched a nerve here... (pun)lol. I'm inclined to agree with the pinched nerve theory, which is what we call 'trapped' here. It's feeling a lot better today... but I don't want to say too much in tempting providence. Thanks for all the input, you're good guys (inc. the ladies). Update...
