Harmony Guitars was at one point the largest guitar manufacturer in the US, making millions of guitars until their demise in the early 70's. Manufactured under many names including Silvertone and Stella, Harmony was the quintessential "under the Christmas tree" guitar and was sold by the likes of JC Penny and Sears. But over the years they made many high quality guitars, banjos, violins....almost anything with strings.

We are listing this 1972 Harmony H56 guitar as in good condition because it has a non-functioning neck pickup, or it could just be the pickup switch (just like another Harmony we have in the shop). 

Other than the neck pickup issue this is a remarkably sound guitar for its again. The frets are in very good condition, the neck is true and the neck and body binding is intact and solidly attached. The original floating bridge was lost and we've replaced it with a stock-looking Rosewood floating bridge. 

This 1972 H56 is a solid player and if you are a Harmony fan and feel like figuring out the pickup wiring, this is a good piece of history that also makes music. Includes original -- flimsy -- chipboard case
