Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech. This 1965 Harmony Bobkat is in Very Good vintage condition with modest wear for an instrument of this age. Plenty of small nicks and scrapes but mostly on the edges. Natural aging of parts and finish. Upper left tip of the pickguard has chipped off as is common with guitars of this age. This little gem is made in the USA and appears to be all original. The pots date to 1965 and the underside of the pickguard is stamped November 16, 1965. See below for more details and specifications.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and we try to represent the condition of all used and vintage guitars as accurately as possible in our listings. Every used guitar shows some signs of play wear and vintage models even more so. We call out all areas of damage or unusual wear, and describe the overall condition based upon what is "normal" for the age of the instrument. Expect to see minor dings, finish checking, or other evidence of normal use and aging which may not be captured by photography or explicitly mentioned in the listing.

We recognize that everyone has their own personal standard of what constitutes acceptable wear and tear. If play wear is especially critical for you, please contact us at the Shop for a complete in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have. Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.
