About This Listing

Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting…

A really cool, 1960’s Harmony Ukulele project. As you can see, it needs a set of tuners and some strings but then it will ready to play!!

This cool project came from a since closed Music Shop here in Des Moines. Been around for a long time. Hung on a wall for too many years. Lets hope a cool Tech or Luthier grabs this one and gets it fixed up to enjoy again!

One of the mid 1960’s Uke’s with the plastic fretboard. Very unique and cool. The Harmony logo is still nice and bright on the headstock. The back needs a little regluing, but doesn’t appear to have any breaks or crack. A really cool project that should be simple to complete!

Here’s some cool info we found on the internet regarding cool Harmony Ukulele’s…

By 1915, the time of the San Franscico exposition when the uke came into the public eye, they were the largest manufacturers of ukuleles in America. Through the 60's they continued to have an extensive line of ukuleles. Their line of 8 models consisted of the No. H685 tenor and No. H695 Baritone Ukuleles. These instruments evolved to being made with selected striped mahogany veneers, by the late 60's. The earlier ones were made of seasoned mahogany, nicely figured. The '62 catalogue lists the Brazilian rosewood fingerboards as a feature. The smaller soprano ukes consisted of No. 125 ½ as an excellent beginner's instrument. The No. 119 ½ and the later No. H 98 had stencil scenes and fingerboards that were "Accurately Molded " out of polystyrene. The Roy Smeck Uke No. 555 continued in the line, as the better soprano uke. This also had this plastic fingerboard by the mid 60's. It was the concert size, and larger, which had a rosewood fingerboard. At $20 list, it was real Harmony quality. Harmony's wide choice of ukuleles, whether it was " for fun or educational purpose…gave tangible evidence of their leadership."
Their baritone ukes and tenor guitars still show up as unplayed cast offs from the main stream of instruments.

Sold as is no returns as it vintage and a project. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 20 years now. They all loved what I found for them. This cool project should not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool instruments, parts and projects.
