About This Listing

You don't come by these everyday...

Made in Chicago, USA. After WWII when when you could get metal again to make tailpieces...

This guitar has been around, ya know. And when I found it I had to have it!

This Rare Mahogany Harmony Archtop branded "BRUNO" was made after the end of World War II, probably around 1948. Pretty cool huh...

Made out of Mahogany and well loved (and played) over the years but it is still in remarkably good condition. One piece mahogany top, one piece back and sides with top binding, this was one of Harmony's professional guitars. There is no pickguard but you can easily pick up one that you like... I would go with black. Oh, and the tuning machines have been replaced with appropriate replicas from StewMac... Check out the action, pretty low unlike most of these old Harmonys. With just a little neck relief too... 

This guitar plays and sounds as sweet as it looks. Rare headstock badge "Bruno" is not one you see everyday. It is, no doubt, a Harmony. And one of the few made of mahogany.

The pictures tell the story, as they always do...

Shipping is quoted to the CONUS. Ships in a chipboard case.
