Hi There,

A neat little 12 Bass. Does it sound as good as it looks?

Are you an experienced player, or is it your intention to learn on this instrument?

Anyway, I can't help you with the date your instrument may have been made, except to say that it is not brand new.

Please give us an idea of your musical aspirations.

Kind Regards,

Stephen.

Viceroy was a brand name of the London musical instrument wholesalers Rose Morris & Co., which was put onto various of their cheap lines and toy/educational instruments, including many inexpensive imported accordions that were made in Klingenthal, Saxony.

The Art-Deco style (think 1930's cinemas) of those keyboard ends became very fashionable around 1936/37, when Hohner started using them.
