It's unusual to find a Harmony guitar from the '30s, and even more unusual to find one in this condition. The ink date stamp appears to be '35, although it is a bit blurry, not unusual. We've had a few others from the '30s with the dame duco paint on the fingerboard and they can be nice sounding and playing guitars. Sunburst top with stenciled Art Deco ornamentation; decal back strip.

The solid birch body measures 13 1/4" across the lower bout. Scale length is 24 1/8". The poplar neck measures 1 3/4" across at the nut and is carved in a comfortable, modern-feeling 'C' shape.

The guitar appears to have had a life under the bed. There are no repairs evident, all components appear original to the guitar, with only a few nicks here and there. The frets show no wear but will need to be dressed, especially along the fingerboard edge. The guitar needs a neck reset. Upon close examination the neck joint is already loose (common on many old catalog guitars) and will likely come out dry, allowing the reset move along quickly. Tapping the back, the middle back brace made need a bit of glue, but visually it looks intact.

We're selling this as-is, no returns, no case, but we may find something in the pile for shipping.
