Engraving a present (harmonica)... A few questions?

I am planning to purchase a harmonica similar to this for my boyfriend (Valentines Day gift):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310198065130

He has a diatonic but its fairly beat up and cheap. Plus he's mentioned how he'd love a chromatic. Anyhow, I'd love to have him name engraved into the top of it but I had a few questions.

1. Can I have this engraved without ruining it.
2. Where should I bring it to be engraved? Someone told me to take it to a key cutting place to be cheaper... is that like a hardware store?
3. Around how much will this run me?

I haven't seen it done, but I bet it can be. My notes:

* Don't get a no-name chromatic. They're too complicated to do well without paying attention to the details, and the knock-offs don't. I have a Hohner Super 64 myself, but 10-hole is still really nice and packs better.

* The covers are steel, so engraving it will remove the plating and open it to rust. The gold-plate you linked will have the same trouble. That said, my son was running with a Special 20 of mine and wiped out on the sidewalk, which scratched the cover on the front. It's never really rusted. Maybe there's a chemical etching available, but I don't know anything about that.

* The Super 64x has black covers, large and flat, so engraving may show up better.

* You might be able to get the back of the comb (front has the holes in it) engraved and filled. That will require there to be a big blank space, and that's where some manufacturers put their names.

* The covers are held on with screws and removing them isn't a big deal. That would make it easier to mount in an engraving machine and to support it for the engraving.
