Concert-used harmonica, labeled by Dylan’s guitar tech

Personally-played stage-used Marine Band M. Hohner harmonica. Originating from Cesar Diaz, Dylan’s longtime guitar technician, the top surface of the harmonica is marked in Diaz’s own writing with the corresponding key on a small piece of white tape, in this case “C,” and also labeled with Dylan’s name on the plastic case. Harmonica was originally acquired by Diaz and given to a friend from Penn State University he met back in the 1970s. In fine condition, with expected wear from use. Diaz began his association with Dylan in 1986; leaving in 1993 to devote time to his amplifier business. Besides Dylan, Diaz worked with number of high profile musicians, most notably Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Neil Young. Diaz also performed with Dylan as a guitarist in 1991, playing on nearly fifty dates after G. E. Smith left the band. RR Auction COA.
