Up for sale is this vintage 1968 Harmony Rocket signed by Brittany Howard of the Alabama Shakes.

This instrument is all original and in very nice condition for its age, although it does show wear from years of enjoyment. There are numerous dings, scuffs, and scratches as well as a decent amount of touch up around the edges (pictured). There is a superficial small crack at the jack (pictured), as per usual on these, but it is stable as it sits. There is a circular intention on the heel of the body (pictured) that we can not explain. The bridge is cracked on the bass side edge (pictured) but is perfectly functional.

This one got a very quick going-over by our tech who installed a fresh set of strings, wiped it down, and sprayed out the electronics. The original gold foil DeArmond pickup sounds great and both controls work as they should. The playability on this one is comfortable, but it could use some more set up to bring it to your exact playing preferences. The original frets show wear, but still retain a lot of life, and the truss rod functions as it should.

No case or gig bag is included, but the instrument will be well-packed to ensure safe shipping. Overall, this one isn't perfect, but it's a nice example of an affordable, USA-built vintage guitar.
