So Ive gotten the hold of a 2021 black beauty accadian and Im telling you this is the real deal. I do like the hohner 114 its an exelent beginners accordion and if retuned its a pretty spectacular instrument, the reads are just great. However the acadian make it look like a model T ford next to a ferrari... so please be so kind as to suck my balls in hell Johnny Coda.
I enjoy my old Germany made 114 very much (same older look as the one pictured above). I play it often enough in addition to my Le Capitaine and Martin. Sometimes it has the "right" sound for particular songs. I know Savoy would recommend them as a "first" accordion and would "cajun" tune them. Don't know if he still does.
