About This Listing

Had mistakenly put in the wrong price for this guitar. Thought I was listing another Harmony classic guitar and got the prices mixed up. I have also included a picture of the original case that came with the H173. Both guitar and case have aged gracefully. 55 is the new 25.

Classic vintage Harmony H-173 nylon string guitar. Made to go after the Martin and Gibson concert style classical guitars at a fraction of the cost. The H-173 and H-174 were the top line classical guitar for Harmony in the 60's and 70's. It has a solid spruce top with birch sides and back and it is some of the prettiest wood I have seen on a guitar. The top has beautiful tortoise binding and the soundhole has the same tortoise binding. Very unique. It has the original tuners, which I believe are the same ones used by Martin and Gibson on their concert guitars in the 60's. I played this one quite a bit trying to get used to the different neck and there is a slight indent on the fingerboards 1st fret B string. It does not affect playing whatsoever but is noticeable. It is to be expected on a guitar of this age. Because I did quite a bit fingerpicking, I put a pickguard on her to avoid further finger scuffs, but is easily removed with some dry heat. It has the full untouched saddle that came with the H173. These are getting harder and harder to find, especially in this condition along with its original case. Harmony guitars are now getting the recognition they deserve for being some of the best guitars ever made during the 60's and 70's.  

Will ship the same day if purchased before 1:00 PM eastern time and will pack it as if I am shipping to myself.
