Harmony Electric Guitar models
A while ago I became browsing the E-bay auction directories, studying the various Harmony guitars offered available. There's always a soft area within my heart (and maybe some room within my wardrobe) for a classic Rocket or Stratotone. Scrolling through directories, I've seen them all, from a striking mint-condition Espanada to a trashed low-end Archtone, sold by every person from a huge hot-shot dealership to someone's Aunt Sophie. E-bay, needless to say, may be the great equalizer. And always a source of entertainment and amazement. Here are some E-bay howlers which had myself amused and amazed. A few of the lengthier people were modified a little. The spelling and punctuation tend to be "all original".
"it is a beautiful sounding balance solid mahogany classical guitar. Very mellow. This is the "Plane Jane" design. No binding, no frilaments, no bells buzzers or whistles. But this baby delivers warm complete tones which are very astonishing in my experience. There clearly was a golfball size bash nearby the soundhole, just underneath the upper cross brace. This could be fixed with elmers and a couple clamps and cauls. Really, this is a pretty good guitar. It's no Gibson, nor a Martin, but it's all American, and it's all-wood. It is a HARMONY."
Yeah, bud, it really is a Harmony, fine. Simply drive a few more baseballs through it, plus it will not have "frilaments" left at all. But that's okay, we are able to just fix all the" bell buzzers" with some "elmers and two clamps". Then shades will truly be surprising.
"WOW! Winning Bidder gets no-cost, insured shipment for this BREATHTAKING, 1965, Neo Classical, solitary Cutaway Harmony H-74 w/ first Hardshell Case! These were the top the range Harmony create then, (and they are best vendor in a 2" thick, Thinline Archtop Electric guitar). The neck is straught and true. Initial Grover tuners work perfect. This will be a rather ccol guitar. Only connect it in therefore the noise is from very tonal to blast-off. Even Harmony sold this guitar under the acronym "the indegent people's Gretsch". Kindly e-mail me personally any questions and I also gets straight back ASAP. ALL THE BEST ON A REALLY HARD TO FIND A 1965 IN SUCH EXCELLENT CONDITION. DON'T ALLOW THIS ONE ESCAPE!"
First Grover tuners are "ccol". Too bad these people were never original to any "straught" Harmony that I know of. Catch this 2" dense best-seller before it goes tonal and blasts off you! I am unsure which acronym is short for "poor people people's Gretsch", but I think it is B.S.
"a vintage Harmony 6 string Electric Guitar. An excellent cheap tool to understand on matter-of-fact there are some stickers from the fretboard the indicate this was students electric guitar DESIRES 2 tuners purchase it and I also will throw-in a set of chrome tuners Dont play quicker than it is possible to!!"
How many stickers does it take to figure out that a particular guitar was students design? At least three, but no more than five, because that currently helps it be a collector's product. "Dont play faster than you'll!!" feels like good advice, easily could only figure out what precisely that means. I will not also enter into the punctuation
"YOU WILL BE BIDDING ON A NOVELTY GUITAR THAT IS AN EXCELLENT GIFT otherwise INSTRUMENT TO RELAX AND PLAY ABOUT AMONG. THIS CAN BE A 3/4 SIZED ELECTRIC GUITAR WITH METAL STRINGS. COMES WITH A STEEL REINFORCED NECK, AS WELL AS HAS A PICK!"
Wow, it also includes a pick! That is worth shouting about, I'm certain. Simply the type of novelty guitar I always desired to "play around with", if not to truly play
"uncertain how old but I belive this may be a mature Harmony Says on it Harmony plus in purple letters title Monterey This has a lovely finish from the guitary Guitar does have an issue though there was a slit in the electric guitar about 3.5" lengthy begins during the cutout and decreases. Could possibly be repaired by a professional No strings on electric guitar often. SEEK OUT purchase IT NOW WITH THIS ONE AT $85. "
Yeah, I too "belive" it must be an older Harmony "guitary" if it's old and claims "Harmony" on it. Gorgeous finish, certainly. What's kept of it.
"1960s Harmony Rocket Guitar Red. This is a genuine Harmony Rocket thinline hollow guitar. It's all original excluding a missing pickguard. The problem is excellent (about a 7 regarding 10 cosmetically) with small wear in the back of the neck (see pictures). No breaks or cracks. Search words, Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, Les Paul, Gibson, Fender, Marshall, Kramer, Charvel. Jazz Bass, Precision, blond, sunburst, all-natural."
Can someone kindly reveal to me personally why anybody looking for a Kramer or a Marshall will be enthusiastic about a vintage Harmony Rocket? The vendor forgot to add Danelectro, Ibanez, SG, doubleneck, PAF, pre-CBS, Ampeg
