Howdy folks, looking to help a friend identify the model of this gem he received from a family member. Appreciate your help!

Ask your friend to remove the resonator & look for stamps or labels inside the pot.

I don't know what model name or number Hohner put on that one, but it does not matter much. It's a bottom-of-the-line instrument, made in Asia during the 1960's or 70's.
Can't really tell from the pictures, but it probably wouldn't take much more than a bridge, a set of strings (extra-light acoustic guitar, or "9" or "10" electric), and basic setup to make it playable.
It has no value as an antique or collectible. In good playing order, it's not worth much more than $100.

Yup, Asian, not one of the earlier German-made models. It definitely post-dates the '60s; the late '70s or early '80s are most likely.
